We have delivered nearly 2,000 Impact Grants in 70 countries since this initiative began in 2010, sharing our expertise and advanced capabilities in cloud, analytics, mobile, social and security. The grants have a combined value of more than $53 million, including $6 million in software to more than 200 organizations. Just as these transformative offerings are helping business enterprises achieve their commercial potential, they can likewise enable nonprofit organizations to serve their constituencies more effectively. Our Impact Grant portfolio has expanded every year, enabling IBM to be more agile and responsive to the evolving needs of the nonprofit sector.
