fulfilling lives.

Empower by GoDaddy is GoDaddy’s global community and philanthropic program, equipping entrepreneurs with training, tools and peer networks to accelerate their journeys. GoDaddy has given more than $23 million to nonprofits and CDFIs around the globe.

Together with our nonprofit partners, we work to understand local communities and the small business landscape to identify gaps and develop customized, neighborhood-based programs that meet every entrepreneur where they are on their journey. 
Our approach is to apply what we do best — being digital teachers, coaches, mentors and relentless advocates — as we focus on supporting the unique needs of entrepreneurs in underserved communities. 

Internally, our goal is to create thoughtful, high-impact ways for employee volunteers to live out our vision and mission and experience first-hand how they can give back and improve lives.
