We believe in the power of technology to transform society in positive ways.

“By taking a risk-tolerant approach to philanthropy and impact investing we can scale impact—beyond what traditional grantmaking can do.”

—Joe Speicher, Executive Director, Autodesk Foundation

Since 2014, the Autodesk Foundation has facilitated over $37 million in grants and impact investments, over $160 million in Autodesk donated software solutions, and nearly 170,000 Autodesk employee volunteer hours, collectively reaching more than 6,000 nonprofits and social enterprises.

Reflecting on what we’ve learned

We believe it’s important to increase transparency in philanthropy. So we are sharing our unique experience. What’s worked, what hasn’t, and how we adapted.

Our hope is that by sharing our key insights with the world, we can help illuminate the path for others.
