How can you organization utilize technology to help TechBridge break the cycle of generational poverty?

What is a “Dream Big” Technology Grant?

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!

The Dream Big Technology Grant is designed to help nonprofits apply creative technology solutions to their organizations. Technology has the potential to transform the operations of shelters, food pantries, workforce development programs, after-school learning programs and more. Could you do more client-facing service if you saved time absorbed by manual administrative processes? Could you use systems and technology to improve client tracking and outcome measurements, donor management, and “talking” to each other about how to better serve your communities?

This is one of the few grant opportunities focus on nonprofits getting and using software technologies (plus IT hours) to help fulfill their missions. In 2018 and 2019, the Dream Big Technology Granting judging panel of primarily Georgia CIOs, CTOs, CDOs and other technology leaders selected nonprofit organizations with the following NTEE Core Codes.
