Cisco Systems, Inc.
Visionary Sponsor

Cisco Impact Philanthropy is about building strong and productive global communities -- communities in which every individual has the means to live, the opportunity to learn, and the chance to give back. Any one of these essentials is enough to make a difference in the present, but it takes all three to set in motion an enduring cycle of health and prosperity.

Our goal is to identify nonprofits that do outstanding work in one or more segments of the cycle, as shown at right. We support such organizations as they respond to communities in immediate distress, and we help expand their long-term capacity by encouraging the innovative integration of technology into their operational strategies.

The result? Nonprofits reach new levels of productivity, and chronic intervention steadily gives way to lasting transformation. That's what sets our philanthropy apart. That's the Cisco Impact.
