  • Put Your Organization on the Map: Show the world you're making a difference through compelling maps and apps that highlight your work and build public support.
  • Broadcast Your Mission: Reach new donors and discover like-minded communities to empower your mission.
  • Set Plans. Execute Strategies. Change the World: Use the power of maps and geotargeting to devote resources to the places where they can do the most good.

What's Included

Qualified nonprofits involved in humanitarian, conservation, and community services efforts can use Esri ArcGIS technology to provide services and support for their operations and program management. If you are approved as a member, Esri will donate the same technology that is used in more than 350,000 organizations worldwide to help you meet your mission. While the software is free, there is a minimal annual administrative fee to cover processing and support.

A qualified member of the Nonprofit Organization Program will receive the specified ArcGIS software at no cost. An administrative fee will be assessed to cover operational expenses.
