We empower social change agents with technology and expertise. Our goal: Accelerate global problem solving to benefit people, society, and the planet.
Multiplying our impact
When we put transformative technology in the hands of passionate people, few challenges are too big. With DSS technology and expertise, we’re empowering global problem solvers to make a positive impact on people, society, and the planet.
Leveraging our strengths
We focus our efforts where our strengths can make the greatest impact. For example, when our products are used in crisis situations, when we empower non-profits to develop scalable technology solutions, and when DSS employees lend their time and expertise.
We focus the technology-based solutions on underserved communities and look for solutions that harness the power of the Internet and communications technology.
Investment areas: We focus our support where we can make the biggest impact – education, economic empowerment, and critical human needs
Support for non-profits: We make strategic grants to programs with long-lasting impact on a local, national, and global scale
Engaged employees: We empower employees to give more by matching their donations and making cash donations when they volunteer
