Sen. Richardville invites nonprofits to apply for technology funding
LANSING - State Sen. Randy Richardville, R-Monroe, today invited nonprofits in the 17th Senate District to apply for grants available from AT&T Inc.'s philanthropic arm aimed at helping them use technology to improve the lives of local residents.
"Nonprofit organizations provide important services throughout our community, and upgrading technologies will enable them to put more time, effort, and funds to accomplishing their tasks," said Richardville. "One of these grants will help nonprofit organizations reach out to the community quicker and cheaper. I would like to thank AT&T for offering these grants to improve the connection between goodwill organizations and the community."
The AT&T Foundation is now accepting applications for 2007 AT&T Excelerator competitive technology grants.
The multi-million dollar grant program is designed to help nonprofit organizations integrate technology into their operations and community outreach. In 2007, the AT&T Excelerator program will award $9 million in competitive grants to help local nonprofit organizations increase their effectiveness and ability to improve lives.
AT&T Excelerator addresses a variety of community needs in four program areas: education, community development, health and human services, and arts and culture. In 2006, AT&T Excelerator helped more than 480 organizations across the country build innovative projects through technology to strengthen local communities.
Richardville encouraged nonprofits in the community to apply for the AT&T Excelerator grants program. Interested groups can visit www.att.com/foundation to download a copy of the 2007 AT&T Excelerator grant application.
The deadline for completing the grant applications is 5 p.m. on May 4, 2007.
