Expanding impact solutions globally

The story of Autodesk Foundation’s fiscal year 2023 is one of expansion. Eleven new organizations joined our portfolio, helping us surpass 50 nonprofits and startups—an organizational milestone—for the first time in our existence. We broadened our reach globally, and in key industries like fusion energy, carbon sequestration, electric vehicle maintenance, and sustainable building operations.
