• Transforming Lives Goal

      By 2030, we will use our expertise and technology to help 1,000 nonprofit partners digitally transform to better serve their communities

      Nonprofit groups are among the most powerful forces for driving positive social change in the world, and Dell Technologies wants to help them maximize their potential. Unfortunately, our 2019 research found that 96% of nonprofits are experiencing barriers to digital transformation, and 42% of nonprofit leaders fear they’ll be left behind. These organizations face challenging resource and IT constraints that make it difficult to respond when acute challenges arise — particularly when faced with rapidly shifting social needs and access issues, such as those faced during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Total number of nonprofit partners supported in their digital transformation journey (cumulative)

    In FY21, Dell supported 66 nonprofit partners through our pro bono programs. This represents a six-fold increase compared to our FY20 reach of 11 nonprofits. We attribute this increase to the launch of two new Tech Pro Bono volunteer programs in FY21. All of our pro bono programs were shifted to a virtual format due to COVID-19. This pivot allowed us to continue delivering critical support to our nonprofit partners and to exceed our FY21 targets.25

    • 25 The number of nonprofits reached in FY20 was previously underreported as 5, and the actual number of nonprofits supported on their digital transformation journeys through our Tech Pro Bono programs has been corrected to 11. After accounting for repeat participants, the number of nonprofit partners supported through our Tech Pro Bono programs in FY21 is 66, bringing the cumulative total to 77 nonprofits supported on their digital transformation journeys to date.
