The Environmental Systems Research Institute provides many resources and avenues for non-profit organizations interested in developing GIS capacity but who lack the funds to pay retail costs. The ESRI Conservation Program (ECP) was ESRI's first non-profit grant program and is it's largest and broadest, reaching well beyond conservation groups to support all types of non-profits. ECP has helped to create and develop spatial analysis, computer mapping and geographic information systems (GIS) capability among thousands of non-profit organizations and individual projects of all sizes and types worldwide. Besides ECP there are other ESRI grant programs of different types and durations (see list at left).

Grant amouts are based on a sliding scale.
