New Foundation Seeks to Transform the Nonprofit Community through Technology, E-Solutions
The Verizon Foundation is committed to supporting programs and projects that create innovative e-solutions, help bridge the digital divide, foster basic and computer literacy and help enrich communities, educate citizens and create a skilled workforce. The Verizon Foundation looks to forge and maintain partnerships around technology initiatives with local, regional, national and international organizations serving the needs of racial and ethnic communities, people with disabilities, and the economically and socially disadvantaged.
In addition, visitors to the Verizon Foundation's bilingual (English and Spanish) Web site will find information on e-training and e-partners, a series of 'best-in-class' technology success stories, and a comprehensive technology resource guide with links to more than 350 online resources supporting technology applications. Links to other Web portals will address such issues as the digital divide and literacy.
The Verizon Foundation Web site also includes grant guidelines, an online grant eligibility quiz and a technology needs assessment section to help nonprofits in applying for grants online, which is the only way applications may be submitted.
