Give BIG! is an effort by sfBIG, and non-profit ComputerforClassrooms.org (CfC) that aims to address the growing digital divide in San Francisco schools and community centers. Together, sfBIG and CfC are working in close partnership with and the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) on this important initiative.
Here in the Bay Area, the heart of technology innovation, most of us enjoy access to the very latest, cutting-edge technology and equipment. However, that’s not the case for everyone in our community, especially kids in our Bay Area public schools and low-income neighborhoods.
SFUSD faces a never-ending challenge in trying to maintain its network of over 60,000 aging and out-dated computers. While the District has made some great strides recently with completion of its new fiber optic network, they still desperately need computers.
Even just a handful of machines can make a big difference in the right place.
ComputersforClassrooms is ready to help with thousands of like-new machines for SFUSD.
CfC is a nonprofit organization started in 1992 whose sole mission is to provide low-cost refurbished computers to schools and income families.
Funding provided by sfBIG members and friends can make this happen.
