Articulate creates simple, powerful software that changes the way the world learns—and we want to spread Articulate love as far and wide as possible. That’s why we’re excited to announce Articulate for Good, our new giving project.
Articulate for Good helps nonprofit organizations create and deliver online training with grants that include Articulate software, cash, and training. Your organization can apply for grants to support either existing or new training efforts. We’ll support training that’s targeted at your internal employees or that’s part of the programs and services you offer to the people you serve.
We’re excited to expand our support for nonprofit organizations doing amazing work all over the country and can’t wait to see what you create with our support!
What’s Included in an Articulate for Good Grant
Articulate for Good grants can include Articulate software, cash grants, and training provided by our amazing partner, Yukon Learning. Specifically, grantees may receive:
- Up to three licenses for Articulate Storyline or Articulate Studio
- Three training seats for Yukon Learning’s online courses
- Up to $3,000 in cash
- Access to Articulate Online as needed to deliver and track training
Your nonprofit is welcome to apply for an Articulate for Good grant if it has current tax-exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. For now, we’re limiting this program to U.S.-based organizations, but we hope to expand it internationally soon!
You’re invited to apply for an Articulate for Good grant for any of these purposes:
- Staff Training: Expanding existing online training programs or creating a new online training program for your employees
- External Training Programs: Expanding existing online training or creating a new online training program for your constituents
Your organization must match each grant on a dollar-for-dollar basis. This can be an in-kind contribution of staff time.
We’ll also need applicants to comply with our reporting requirements, including providing accounting information, progress reports, and images that we can use in case studies and other communications.
