Google is pouring hundreds of thousands of dollars into Cleveland in an effort to make our neighborhoods thrive and grow.

Specifically, the tech giant handed out $50,000 apiece to four organizations that do worthwhile, important work in our community.

Now, they’re giving one of the four an additional $50,000, and it’s up to you to decide who gets that extra cash.

The four groups are Ohio Guidestone; Burten, Bell, Carr Development Inc; Cuyahoga County Public Library; and MAGNET (Manufacturing Advocacy and Growth Network).

“Google is thrilled to support these amazing organizations, each of which is doing important work to advance economic opportunity,” said Aisha Taylor, Community Engagement Manager for Grow with Google. “We’re excited by the big ideas they put forward and are eager to see which idea receives the most votes from the people of Cleveland.”
