Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) August 14, 2013
Foundation Financial Group’s Information Technology Division has donated computers and other equipment to Computers For Youth, a national nonprofit organization. Foundation Financial’s I.T. Division made the donation to support CFY’s mission to utilize digital to improve educational outcomes.
“We give the equipment that FFG no longer needs to those who will put it to good use,” said Chief Information Officer Rolf Wilck. “By supporting CFY’s Digital Learning Program, we’ve come to realize how valuable these donations are to students, teachers, and families in low-income areas. Computers for Youth helps over 50,000 students supplement their education with technology. Foundation Financial Group is excited to be part of CFY’s positive impact on our nation’s students, particularly young minds in need. What we’re doing is the easy part - what CFY does is phenomenal!”
Computers For Youth leverages technology to meet the organization’s goals for improving education through three areas of focus: students, teachers, and parents. With CFY’s digital activities, students develop self-directed learning skills. Computers For Youth programs also help parents become more powerful learning partners with their children and teachers cultivate a more engaged classroom.
Foundation Financial Group’s I.T. Division evaluates its computer equipment regularly. Unusable equipment is recycled. Items deemed insufficient for the demanding work environment are often still functioning, good quality hardware. The I.T. Division donates those assets to nonprofit organizations that will use the hardware to make a difference in the community.
Wilck hopes that in addition to providing much-needed technology for CFY programs, Foundation Financial’s donation will also inspire other corporations to make similar equipment donations to charities. Previously, FFG’s I.T. Division has donated computers and other equipment to the Salvation Army in Atlanta and Jacksonville. The I.T. Division has also coordinated FFG’s volunteer events for Habitat for Humanity of Jacksonville and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
