Our beneficiaries are K-12 students who attend school full-time. This generation, often dubbed Generation Z, has grown up in an age of innovation, surrounded by technology and widespread use of social media and the Internet. Our goal is to put technology tools in the hands of these young learners.
Foundation proposals should demonstrate benefits to students who, because of financial or other significant life challenges, do not have access to the equitable technology necessary for remote education within their community.
Although we do not require applicants to disclose designation as a Title 1 school, or participation in the USDA’s Free and Reduced Lunch Program, the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, or other forms of federal social aid, the inclusion of data or participation in these types of programs provides context for the need.
