Founded in 2006 by returning Peace Corps volunteer Rob Jordan, Idealist Consulting helps nonprofits and progressive businesses grow mission impact through technology. We educate, empower, and guide teams through Salesforce, marketing automation, and custom application development projects. We’re committed to delivering innovative technical solutions to empower organizations working on some of the world's most important causes.
What is the Idealist Grant? We donate up to 10% of every private sector project to an annual grant. Each year, our staff selects a nonprofit to receive this grant.
We are inspired every day by our nonprofit clients doing incredible progressive work. The Idealist Grant is our way of giving back to fuel more amazing innovation.
The Idealist Grant is funded by our work with Corporate sector clients and is awarded as a tech support grant worth up to $16k. Once nominated, nonprofits have the chance to advocate for themselves by describing their progressive vision that this grant could support.
To be eligible:
Must be a current Idealist Consulting nonprofit client
