#GiveComputers

Approximately 22% of Americans are still not digitally connected.
$100 can change that. 


The COVID-19 pandemic is highlighting the increased number of digital inequities many households face, especially with parents working from home while simultaneously homeschooling their children. This leaves millions of families sharing one computer or tablet or not having a device at all to educate their children while schools, libraries, and other educational facilities are closed.

#GiveComputers! Your donation would close this gap by providing a student with a home computer. 

PCs for People has been a driving force behind digital inclusion efforts for over twenty years, providing newly refurbished computers and tablets to those who wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity to own a computer. This allows low-income individuals and nonprofit organizations to benefit from the life-changing impact of computers and mobile internet.

PCs for People, Schoolclosures.org and Google Fiber are teaming up to put refurbished computers in the hands of children in need. 

Any donation helps. And a donation of $100 will provide a young student with a home computer to be able to attend school remotely during COVID-19. 

Google Fiber is kicking off the fundraising with a $10,000 donation!

Will you help a student in need by making your own tax-deductible donation today?
