Digital Impact Grants was a three-year initiative (2016-2018) of Digital Impact, supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, to fund research and innovation to strengthen the safe, equitable, and effective use of digital resources in civil society. A fundamental goal of the program was to support better data-informed decision making in philanthropy (particularly individual giving) and in the social sector writ large.

The program awarded grants for two types of projects: scholarly research and sector advancement. Our aim: to foster innovations and research that have broad application for improving knowledge, practices, and outcomes across the social sector.
