The HP Foundation is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization that, with the help of HP employees, funds philanthropic programs for underserved communities where they live and work by supporting technology-related learning, charitable giving, volunteering, and disaster relief.
To bridge the “digital divide”, they provide core business and IT skills free of charge for start-ups, students, and small businesses through HP LIFE (Learning Initiative for Entrepreneurs), a global e-learning program of the HP Foundation. HP LIFE has over 631,000 users, is available in seven languages, and offers 27 e-learning courses with 24/7 access, ranging from marketing to finance and operations basics.
When disasters strike, they are there to assist. HP, their employees, and the HP Foundation together provide financial support for affected communities, working with expert partners including the American Red Cross and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.
Individuals and nonprofit organizations around the world are doing great work on important social issues, and many contact them for support. However, HP does not respond to requests for grants or other support.
They work with experts across borders, industries, and institutions to help address global issues, including those related to education and entrepreneurship.
