Dear Digital Equity Champions:
We are grateful for your interest in transforming the lives of Californians seeking a better future by assisting the California Emerging Technology Fund (CETF) to close the Digital Divide, promote Digital Inclusion, and achieve Digital Equity. California is a technological powerhouse, yet the Digital Divide remains a persistent issue, particularly in rural communities, low-income urban neighborhoods, and Tribal Lands. This is why CETF is so focused on driving to results with accountability. To reach this goal, we invite you to donate to the CETF “Give the Gift of Connectivity” launching this Giving Tuesday on November 28th.
The funds raised through the Give the Gift of Connectivity will directly support the CETF Digital Equity Fund to purchase computing devices for low-income households enrolling in the federal Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) and completing digital literacy training. Every cent you contribute goes directly to low-income residents because CETF manages the Digital Equity Fund without charging any fees or overhead.
Your contribution to the Digital Equity Fund transforms lives. CETF and community partners have assisted more than 1 million households in getting connected to the Internet with affordable service and have trained more than 1 million residents to become digitally proficient. We have the data to document the impact on helping families get ahead. Please visit the CETF website to view all the research on results.
Your commitment to Digital Equity will have a powerful impact that changes lives.
Your donation will enable children to do their homework to succeed in school, help their parents apply for better jobs, and ensure families have access to healthcare.
Please join us in making a difference on this Giving Tuesday, November 28, and help us drive positive change in the lives of many Californians. Thank you for your support and generosity.
Sunne Wright McPeak
President and CEO
