What is A “Dream Big” Technology Grant?
Nonprofit staff, boards and volunteer advisors often brainstorm great ideas but lack the resources to follow through with them. What if there was a better, simpler way available by applying the latest technology to your nonprofit’s operation to alleviate non-client supporting duties?
Alabama’s Dream Big technology grant provides funding to make dreams into reality. Nonprofit organizations outline ideas to improve client journeys, re-invent onboarding, motivate donors, link service partners, illustrate their impact and many other brilliant endeavors.
The 2018 edition of Dream Big Alabama was our 2nd year and what an exciting year it was. This year, we encouraged Alabama nonprofits to dream even bigger about what could be possible…and they met the challenge! The maximum project award was increased from $10,000 last year to $30,000 for 2019. We received 10 outstanding applications and awarded Technology Grants to six (6) very deserving Alabama Nonprofits at our Holiday Cocktail and Dream Big Celebration on November 27, 2018. This event was held at the Region’s Center in downtown Birmingham. Amala Duggirala, Regions Bank CIO and TechBridge Alabama Leadership Board Member hosted this fabulous event.
The 2019 Dream Big Alabama grant is made possible by our 2019 Alabama Digital Event Series sponsors and supporters, whose generous donations make this year’s $100,000 fund a reality. On behalf of the nonprofits in Alabama, we are grateful for our donors!
