Google.org Keeps On Giving

Google (http://www.google.com) wanted its philanthropic efforts (Google.org) to eventually have a greater impact than the company itself, so it committed 1 percent of its profits and equity to that cause. Now, Google is providing an update of its philanthropic activities on its Web site.

Google.org includes projects managed by the company, using Google talent, technology, and other resources. An example is the Google Grants program, which gives free advertising to selected nonprofits. To date, Google Grants has donated $33 million in advertising to more than 850 nonprofit organizations in 10 countries.

Google said it intends to follow through with the commitment of donating and investing 1 percent of profits. The first cash donation of $90 million has been made to the Google Foundation with a commitment of up to $175 million during the next 3 years for other Google.org efforts.
