The Trust provides over $1 million to 178 organizations
Non-profit, community and Indigenous groups in the Basin will receive support for technology-related initiatives with funding from Columbia Basin Trust this spring. Over $1 million will go to 178 organizations to increase operations, efficiency and community access to technology through new and updated equipment and infrastructure.
“Non-profits play an important role in community development, but we’ve heard that a lack of technological infrastructure can create barriers to delivering vital services to residents,” said Michelle d’Entremont, Delivery of Benefits Manager with the Trust. “We’re pleased to help so many groups close technology gaps and improve operations and service delivery in their communities.”
Funding will allow organizations to access technology that better meets their needs, from supporting administrative functions to increasing web connectivity, and in some cases offering office technology for community members use.
