NPower and its skills-based volunteering program, The Community Corps, teamed up with Beal Bank and United Way of Metropolitan Dallas to help improve technology capacities at nonprofits and schools across Dallas County in 2015. More than 300 computers were donated in total, valued at more than $100,000.

Over the holidays and into the month of January, distribution of the free computers began to nonprofits and schools serving low to moderate-income individuals and neighborhoods. The grant applications were individually assessed by volunteers from The Community Corps to ensure the computers reach those in the community who need them most. The Community Corps Beal Bank Tech Grant recipients include high-impact nonprofits like:

  • Beacon Hill
  • Childcare Group
  • City Square
  • Communities in School
  • Edge Education
  • Heart House
  • Jewish Family Service, Greater Dallas
  • Jubilee Park and Community Center
  • Kids-U
  • Legal Hospice of Texas
  • Liberty and Trinity
  • Refugee Services of Texas
  • Resource Center of Dallas
  • VMLC

“We were especially moved by the applications submitted by Beacon Hill and Kids U. Both address the vastly unmet needs of underserved students and help provide them with access to technology,” said Kris Falvo, NPower’s North Texas Regional Director. She added, “These nonprofits are excellent examples of local community partners who focus on bringing students up to grade level and by providing these kids better access to technology which can increase learning in STEM-related coursework.”
