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. With each investment, in-kind support of Autodesk technology, training, and expertise scaled impact outcomes.
In fiscal year 2023, the Autodesk Foundation deployed an aggregate of approximately $12.4 million to a global portfolio that achieved the following:
metric tons CO2e of GHG emissions reduced
individuals reached with resilient solutions in housing and infrastructure, energy access, agricultural productivity, and workforce development (cumulative data from active organizations since their inception)
people obtained new or improved jobs
These impact metrics rely on data aggregated and sourced from financial reports, annual reports, organizational key performance indicators, and self-reported data from the Autodesk Foundation portfolio. Read the full Autodesk Foundation FY23 impact report for more details.
