Today at the Tableau Conference in New Orleans, Tableau Software (NYSE: DATA) announced its commitment to grant $100 million in software, training, and financial support through Tableau Foundation between now and the year 2025. The company is pledging to help more people use data to take on some of the world’s toughest challenges including global health, poverty, equality, and climate change. This commitment includes an equity donation of $25 million by Tableau early next year to fund the Foundation’s work. Since its launch in 2014, Tableau Foundation has contributed over $30 million in software, services and cash to support 5,770 organizations working in 86 countries. These grants have helped non-profits like PATH, Splash and Community Solutions use data to tackle big issues such as combating diseases globally, bringing clean water to kids living in developing countries, and reducing veteran homelessness across the United States. Increasing Tableau Foundation’s capacity to provide this type of support will help more organizations make a difference.
