Connecting for Good works to get under resourced people online such as the elderly, the disabled, job seekers and low income families.  But, there is another aspect of the Digital Divide;  the gap between available technology and the use of these resources by nonprofit organizations.

Up-to-date computer hardware, affordable Internet access, knowledge of software applications, a useful web site and social media savvy are all essential for charities operating in this digital era.  When nonprofit organizations take full advantage of these resources, they can raise more funds through improved communication with their supporters and more effectively serve their constituents. Too many nonprofits doing good work in their communities struggle with outdated computers because they lack funds to upgrade.  Without in-house IT staff, they too often end up paying for high-priced services from companies that do not share their passion for reaching out to those in need.

Assisting nonprofits is an important part of the mission of Connecting for Good. We exist to use technology to help people and organizations connect with one another in order to better society and the environment.  Ultimately, we believe connectivity equals opportunity.  So by assisting organizations that do good work with better technology at a lower cost, we know they will be able to help even more people.
