Google.org Pledges Another $50 Million To COVID-19 Relief Funds

Continuing with the initiatives to save the world from COVID-19, Google.org - the company’s charitable arm has now announced to donate more $50 million in grants. The total of the coronavirus relief has come to $100 million and it is getting spent in categories that matter the most.

While sharing the news in a blog post on Wednesday, Jacquelline Fuller - the Vice President of Google.org stated that the executives have to decide to bring in another $50 million in the coronavirus relief fund through which $10 million will be spent on distance learning, $15 million would be kept separate for health and science, and $25 million for economic relief and recovery. The total now stands at $100 million.

Furthermore, Fuller also told that they have tried to keep the focus of their grant on areas where our resources and people have the strongest impact.

When all of it isn’t enough, Google.org Fellows (a program by Google dedicated for employees who can do six months of pro bono work to increase the impact of nonprofits and civic entities) will now also give 50,000 hours to COVID-19 related projects.

Going beyond the Google.org, Google has emerged as a company that truly cares for its users all around the world. More recently, the company collaborated with Apple to make COVID-19 contact tracing software and has even pledged $800 million in coronavirus relief to boost free advertising for small and medium-sized businesses and give more Google Cloud credits to academics and researchers.

What’s next? Only a few days will tell because Google is making all the great decisions one day after the other.
