About the NVIDIA Foundation

Executing employee-driven initiatives that benefit our local communities.


As an outgrowth of NVIDIA’s cultural emphasis on making a contribution, we empower employees to use their time and talent to identify and execute innovative, effective community-based charitable programs, and we work to amplify the impact of these programs by applying company resources and collaborating with business partners. This is accomplished through the work of the NVIDIA Foundation.

Our current focus at the NVIDIA Foundation is to accelerate solutions to the world’s most pressing issues in health and education. We leverage our employees, partners, technology and financial resources to advance the fight against cancer and help youth excel in learning.

Focus Areas

Fighting Cancer
Compute the Cure, our strategic philanthropic program launched in 2010, aims to advance the fight against cancer through grants and employee engagement initiatives. We fund cancer researchers who are using innovative computing methods to accelerate their work and nonprofit organizations that provide patient care and services. Offices around the world hold events engaging employees in raising funds for cancer-focused organizations and improving awareness.
Disaster Relief
Improving Education
The NVIDIA Foundation’s education initiatives help our employees provide K-12 students the tools and skills they need to succeed. Our focus is on offering opportunities to underserved and underrepresented youth. We also strive to improve math and science education, and to inspire youth to enter occupations requiring science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills. Employees use their time and talent to help students through mentoring and tutoring programs. Volunteer events, like our annual Project Inspire effort, physically transform schools in low-income areas to create an inspiring environment for learning.
