Dream Big™ Grants were created to help nonprofits apply creative technology solutions to their organizations. Each Dream Big™ Grant gives organizations in TechBRidge's four pillars the opportunity to leverage technology for simplified client onboarding, tracking client journeys and outcomes, donor management, and measuring missions impact. This series of grants is one of the few grant opportunities that focuses on nonprofits getting and using software technologies (plus IT hours) to help fulfill their missions.

The DreamBig™ for Social Justice Technology Grant combines your ideas with... organizational strategy, tech expertise, technology, and match funding. Each grant takes your idea for improvement and combines it with strategy and the right technology. It’s simple: Simply describe your situation, challenge, or problem --and how technology can be the solution. How can technology help you advance your social justice cause?

Proposed projects must incorporate specific TechBridge services. Projects may include the following TechBridge services: Microsoft Services, Salesforce Services, Exponent Case Management, JusticeServer, Mobile Application Development, and Custom Application Development.
