Every quarter InterConnection awards Computer Grants to nonprofit organizations around the country. InterConnection looks for organizations that have proven they deliver necessary and valuable services to underserved communities like technology training, health care, education and job training. These organizations must also be in need of computer upgrades imperative to better manage their organization and improve their capacity to deliver these valuable services.

For our last Nonprofit Computer Grant Application Deadline on June 1st, InterConnection received over 100 applications from nonprofit organizations across the United States. The grant committee reviewed each application carefully and based their decisions on the following criteria:

40% - Impact and Reach
20% - Technological Capacity of the Grantee
25% - Ability to Execute, Financial Capacity and Plan for Sustainability
15% - Organizational Need

Of the 100 organizations that applied 12 organizations were chosen as grant recipients and will be awarded computers. We would like to congratulate the following organizations on being chosen as our 2015 3rd Quarter Nonprofit Computer Grant Recipients:
