Access to quality learning tools and technology is critical to creating equity in the classroom. While supplies like pens, paper, art supplies, and calculators remain important, technology and specialized equipment are increasingly required for learning both in the classroom and at home. Donors can contribute to this area of investment, helping students whose families cannot afford these often-expensive supplies.
Donations to this fund may support the purchase of at-home and classroom libraries, technology tools, school supplies, and specialized personal protective equipment (PPE).
Chromebooks for Kids aims to reduce technology-based inequity, and support students’ discovery and learning at home. Working with our Principals through a referral system, these brand new education-grade devices are given to students in grades K-12 who will benefit the most.
In its first year, more than $100,000 was raised and almost 600 chromebooks were placed in the hands of students across the city. For an updated view of all of the schools that have received chromebooks, please take a look at our Interactive Map!
