The “Grants for Non-Profits” Index summarizes grants recently made available to non-profits to support their missions, increase technology innovation, and promote efficiency through technology. Many major software manufacturers and hardware corporations have made giving to non-profits a high priority in their organizations, which means now is the time to open up and utilize offerings available to your group. Grants for efficiency through technology are available for community development, civic betterment, disabled or elder assistance, education, faith-based social service providers, grassroots organizing groups, health-care agencies, recreation organizations, social service providers, technology centers and youth/after-school groups or services. In addition, non-profits will find grants that cut across all sectors.

These grants are available for non-profit- business-education or community partnerships. They support IT training for the non-profit organization, whether staff or clientele and back the need for graduating skilled workers, retraining employees, and helping displaced workers meet such special challenges as employment that will equip them to work until retirement. Timely profiles of grant/funding/resource opportunities for technology for non profit organizations are assembled in the “Grants for Non-Profits” Index.

Instead of a truckload of cereal staying in Boloxi, Mississippi, the cereal company can notify Second Harvest, and Second Harvest can notify their affiliates and make arrangements for immediate shipment point-to-point. The product donators are already seeing a 6 figure savings on a monthly basis from savings in food inventory storage costs…”
