The Dell Foundation has awarded “Connected Community” grants to 25 organizations in four states – Texas, Tennessee, Oklahoma, and North Carolina – where significant numbers of Dell employees live and work. The two-year, $50,000 grants support basic technology access for Dell’s neighbors, with emphasis on helping underserved children become competitive in the digital economy. For example, some grants provide internet access and computers for pre-school and after-school programs. Others include a mobile computer lab to enable children to use internet resources for their homework, and a web-based musical education program and chat rooms for schools to enhance learning opportunities.
