Nonprofit Technology Proposals Invited for SBC Excelerator Competitive Grants Program

Deadline: August 13, 2004

The SBC Foundation, the chief philanthropic vehicle of SBC Communications, Inc., is accepting applications for its SBC Excelerator technology grants program, which this year will focus on helping nonprofits fully integrate technology into their ongoing operations and community outreach.

The SBC Excelerator program seeks to fund projects that build the technology infrastructure of nonprofits, enabling them to increase their organizational effectiveness and/or service delivery capability. Examples of qualifying projects include expanding/enhancing Internet access; data networking; online outreach; increasing staff technology capacity; and pooled technology resources.

To qualify, the major focus of the organization and its project must fall into one of the following areas: education, community development, health and human services, or arts and culture.

One-year SBC Excelerator grants range from $2,500 to $25,000, with the typical award totaling $5,000. Collaborations by two or more organizations will be considered for grants of up to $50,000. Grant funds may be used for data communications services, hardware, software, technology training, personnel, and application development.
