FYI. Might be useful.


The Motorola Mobility Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Motorola
Mobility, is accepting applications for the 2012 Empowerment Grants, a
funding program designed to help United States-based nonprofit
organizations develop mobile applications and use mobile technology that
will help transform and benefit the communities they serve. The program
addresses four areas of focus — education, health and wellness, community,
and arts and culture.
Successful applications must demonstrate the ways that digital, mobile, and
social technology can be used to further a nonprofit organization’s
mission. Examples include producing a crowd-sourcing site for community
resource mapping, creating a digital storytelling application that captures
oral histories of a community, developing a resource for social media use
to further engage volunteers, and using new ideas of “gamefication in
education” to engage students.

The total amount of funding for the Empowerment Grants program is $500,000;
the program will fund approximately twenty grants. The average grant size
is $25,000.

After March 1, organizations can visit
to apply.

information and application procedures:
