Nonprofit Grant Program

Nonprofits in California are making an impact on our communities. But, many lack the resources to keep pace with the changing technological landscape.

At Barefoot Solutions, we want to change that. As a result, we have launched “Tools for Change”, a grant program offering a FREE mobile app prototype to one nonprofit in California, with an innovative application idea to excel their organization.

So, we are inviting all 501(c)(3) organizations across California to apply now to be awarded a $25,000 Functional App Prototype. See more on Functional App Prototypes here.

Grant Program Details

  • Grant program open to all licensed 501(c)(3) entities in California
  • A panel of judges will award 1 deserving organization a fully functional prototype for a mobile app
  • Judging panel will include civic and business leaders and professionals across the region

Hey, we know how detailed and specific you need to be in writing grants, well this ain’t that! We understand that you may not know exactly what you want to do or what is possible, so please just let us know your challenges and our team of experts can help you formulate your idea if you are nominated. If you already know exactly what you want, that’s great. If not, just tell us about you and your needs. We are selecting based off of the quality of your organization, not your software expertise!

  • You are invited to submit a brief video submission to further showcase your organization. You may give insight to your mobile application idea, and how it will help your organization. This is optional and may be submitted at any point until application submission deadline on February 28th, 2019 via email.
