The late, great Congressman John Lewis called digital equity the 'civil rights issue of the 21st century.' Services, education, healthcare, civic participation, and work are digitalizing. Yet one in two people remain offline, falling further behind just by staying where they are.
A catalytic combination of philanthropy and low-interest loans is needed to meet communities where they are, with they kinds of support they need, to ensure an equitable digital future for all. No single investment will connect the world. Together, many will.
Join us in this critical work. Though over the coming year we will develop specific campaigns to support specific communities, donations made today will go into our general purposes fund to support the development of our community, trainings, and programs.
Feel free to contact us directly if you would like to learn more or give differently.
