Las Vegas – Tech Impact’s ITWorks program has received a $50,000 grant from the MGM Resorts Foundation to further the organization’s goal of providing underemployed and unemployed young adults with the skills and experience they need to launch careers in technology. This generous grant will support the ITWorks program in the Las Vegas community. In 2016, ITWorks Las Vegas graduated 25 students, and the program will serve up to 36 students this year. ITWorks is free of charge for students because of funders like MGM Resorts Foundation.
We have some very exciting news to share with you!
Washington, D.C.-based 501cTECH, a leading provider of nonprofit technology services in the D.C. region has joined forces with Tech Impact.
We have worked alongside our colleagues at 501cTECH for more than a decade. First, as part of the NPower Network created by Microsoft to deliver affordable and sustainable solutions to community based nonprofits like yours and then as partners with Tech Soup.
As we grow Tech Impact, your support means so much. We will continue to offer all existing programs – nonprofit IT services and technology workforce development programs like ITWorks and Zip Code Wilmington – and we will offer new services, including Salesforce customization, tech capacity programs and 501cTECH’s signature Technology Innovation Award and Celebration of Technology. Consolidating some back office functions will result in greater efficiency, reducing overhead expenses and positioning our organization for continued growth.
Tech Impact's entire tech team will remain intact, allowing us to retain the personal touch and the first-hand knowledge of our customers’ needs that are so important to quality service delivery. The 501cTECH team will remain on board to run a Tech Impact office in Washington, D.C. and Julie Chapman, 501cTECH’s president and chief executive officer, will become the executive director of Tech Impact’s D.C. office and operations. Patrick Callihan will serve as the chief executive officer of the combined organization.
