Celebrating 10 years of the Telstra Foundation
To celebrate its 10th anniversary, the Telstra Foundation is donating $1 million to help Australian children and young people make the most of modern communication technologies.One hundred $10,000 Everyone Connected grants are available to local community organisations to support activities that help enhance digital inclusion – connecting disadvantaged children and young people to the internet, building their online skills and promoting cyber safety.
We know that some groups in our communities are less likely to have access to modern communications technologies and the social and economic benefits they bring.Our Everyone Connected grants will support activities that enhance these opportunities and help children and young people reach their potential, regardless of income, ability, location or disadvantage.
As a Telstra employee, I can apply for an Everyone ConnectedGrant on behalf of a non-profit community organisation. We will need to have the organisation and project or activity details on hand to complete the online application form.If you are a non-profit community organisation with a great idea for an Everyone Connected activity, you can apply for a grant. You just need to complete an online application form and find a Telstra employee (Consider me) to endorse your project or activity.
For more information, go to Telstra Foundation Everyone Connected Grants Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).You can also view our Everyone Connected case studiesto see some examples of digital inclusion in action.Applications for the one-off Telstra Foundation Everyone Connected Grants are open from Tuesday 29 May 2012 and will close on Monday 30 July 2012, with announcements made in mid September 2012.
Oh, and if you can combine this with something oriented to sustainability (but not necessary) I would be very happy.
