DREAM BIG TECHNOLOGY GRANT
How can your organization utilize technology to help TechBridge break the cycle of generational poverty?
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?
Georgia’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.
