The organization's first competitive grant program will open on Jan. 4, 2021, with a focus on increasing African American engagement in cybersecurity. Starting that day, nonprofit programs that focus on education, training, scholarships, mentorship, and professional development for African Americans in security are invited to complete a grant request.

In February, the foundation's advisory board will choose the top three cybersecurity nonprofits it considers most impactful to the African American community and award grants of $500,000, $300,000, and $200,000. The advisory board comprises 29 members who are well-known experts in both cybersecurity and nonprofits.
