Protecting our future

CrowdStrike’s social impact programs advance causes that protect our customers, are important to our people, and support communities across the globe.

Initiatives

At CrowdStrike, we believe protecting the world’s most vulnerable organizations, institutions and communities is critical to the overall success of the cybersecurity industry. Our social impact initiatives are key to this cause:


Philanthropy

The skills gap in the cybersecurity industry continues to grow, while the threat landscape continues to evolve. We’re committed to building the skills necessary to reduce the opportunity gap in technology and cybersecurity.


Pro bono security software

We provide free access to the industry-leading CrowdStrike Falcon® platform to protect nonprofit organizations that need it the most.


CrowdStrike Cares

We empower our employees to seek out opportunities that strengthen their communities through our CrowdStrike Cares volunteer program.

NextGen Scholarship Program

  • Develops the next generation of talent and leadership in cybersecurity and artificial intelligence (AI).
  • Provides financial assistance to select undergraduate and graduate students studying cybersecurity and/or AI.
  • Since 2017, over 32 scholarships have been awarded to students throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Operation Motorsport Foundation

  • CrowdStrike partners with the Operation Motorsport Foundation, a veteran led nonprofit organization focused on aiding the recovery and rehabilitation of medically retiring or retired service members through motorsports.
  • Operation Motorsport partners with professional racing teams, including CrowdStrike Racing, to embed program beneficiaries as team members.
  • The skills that make a successful racing team - teamwork, critical thinking, data analytics and adversary insights- are the same that make a successful team fighting against cyber adversaries.

The CrowdStrike Foundation

CrowdStrike invests in the community by supporting nonprofits across the globe. Our donations support causes such as fighting poverty and racial injustice, helping young women and girls of color learn to code, and assisting victims of natural disasters recover and rebuild.

Cybersecurity for those in need

Organizations such as think tanks, advocacy groups and social development entities possess valuable assets, including data and intellectual property that make them prime targets for cyber attacks. Yet many nonprofit organizations have small, distributed staffs and constrained budgets, making it difficult to develop and maintain mature, effective security programs.

CrowdStrike is here to help

Nonprofits, human rights organizations, journalists, think tanks and those fighting to protect digital freedoms and privacy face sophisticated intrusions across the globe. CrowdStrike provides pro bono security software and services, including free access to the industry-leading CrowdStrike Falcon® platform, to protect your operations and privacy so that you can focus on what matters most.

  • FAQs
    For nonprofit organizations with less than 250 endpoints interested in applying to the pro bono program, please read our FAQs before submitting an application.
  • Terms and conditions
    All pro bono customers must accept the CrowdStrike Falcon® platform terms and conditions.
  • Active security incident help
    This program is designed to strengthen security, not to respond to an active security incident. If you’ve experienced a breach, see our incident response services.

CrowdStrike Cares

We believe cybersecurity is more than a career. It’s a calling. Every day, our people come to work ready and determined to help create a safer, more secure world. We created our CrowdStrike Cares program to encourage our people to give back to their communities in the way that’s most meaningful to them. Our teams have volunteered at parks, food banks, and schools around the world. As a remote-first company, we also provide virtual volunteer opportunities ranging from online mentorship programs to STEM Education Kit assembly.
