About the Grant Program

NETSCOUT offers a $10,000 grant opportunity through the Greater Lowell Community Foundation to support a nonprofit organization serving vulnerable populations in the Greater Lowell area and Burlington. NETSCOUT is also interested in providing opportunities for their employees to be involved in addressing community issues. Therefore, the selected nonprofit offers community service opportunities for NETSCOUT employees either at a local NETSCOUT office or at the nonprofit’s site.

Specifically, eligible organizations are those that serve elderly, youth, veterans, persons with physical or mental health disabilities, addictions, and victims and families of domestic abuse/violence. There is a preference, not a requirement, that the selected organization use the grant to fund a specific project (rather than general operations) and that the grant is awarded to an organization with an annual budget of less than $1 million.
