$9.8 million

Since 2011, Google has donated a total of $9.8 million in charitable giving to nonprofits and schools in Colorado.


Coloradans are employed full-time by Google. We're proud to have offices in Boulder and Thornton.

Maintaining a blend of Google and Colorado culture, our Boulder and Thornton offices feature a bouldering climbing wall, vintage Shasta RV trailer, bike repair room, fitness center, music room, and barista counter.

Employees on our Colorado campus represent a variety of teams, including sales, recruiting, engineering, and product management for Google Cloud, Google Maps, and Google Payments platforms.

As part of our health and wellness program, we partnered with Boulder-based Eldorado Climbing Walls to incorporate a bouldering wall in our new space. In addition, we have bike lockers and a repair room for the many Googlers that bike to work every day.

Google in the community

We’re committed to playing a positive role in each of the communities in which we live and work. We host partners like the Boulder Chamber of Commerce, Boulder Transportation Connections, and students from the Boulder Valley School District for receptions and tours of the campus. And since 2011, we’ve awarded $9.8 million in grants and employee-matched giving to Colorado nonprofits and schools in areas that we’re passionate about, including science and technology education, economic opportunity, and access to the Internet.

With cafe views of the foothills, food is core to Google’s culture. By donating food to the Boulder Shelter for the Homeless and having an on-site food dehydrator composting system, Google Boulder strives to be a zero food waste campus.

Google for education

We believe that every student and every educator, in every classroom, deserves the tools and skills that set them up for success in building the future they want for themselves. That’s why we’re committed to supporting students, partnering with educators, building products, and making impactful investments that help enhance and expand education through technology.

Because the importance of, and real world demand for, digital skills is only increasing, every student from grade school through grad school should have the opportunity to explore computer science and engineering. Whether or not they choose to pursue it, they should have the chance to be the creators—not just the consumers—of technology.

We work to positively impact the world through our products, programs, people, and philanthropy. Our local support for education efforts includes: 

  • Supporting STEM programming at the Boulder Valley School District and Impact on Education.
  • The Boulder engineering team maintains a close relationship with the University of Colorado, whose main campus is only about a mile from the office, along with the Colorado School of Mines.
  • We work closely with the National Center for Women & Information Technology to promote diversity within the tech community.
  • Awarding scholarships to aspiring computer scientists from underrepresented groups—in 2017 to one student to attend University of Colorado.
