Supporting people do
more together

We are proud to bring programs that support local businesses, schools and nonprofits in communities with Meta data centers.

Supporting the community

Since 2011, Meta has provided more than 1,500 grants and $40+ million in direct funding to schools and nonprofits in communities where we have a data center to support projects that build connections, put technology to use for community benefit, and enhance local STEM education. Here are some programs we support locally.

Data Center Community Action Grants

This annual program provides direct funding for projects that benefit communities where we have an operational data center by putting the power of technology to use for community benefit, connecting people online or off, and improving local STEM education.

Facebook Safety

Nothing is more important than the safety of the people who use our service. We work with external experts, including a Safety Advisory Board, and gather feedback from our community to develop policies, tools and resources to keep you safe. 

The projects from schools and organizations supported by the grants will help to improve our community, and I look forward to the impact and benefit they will have for students, families and local residents.
