Feathering the NEST celebration

Thanks to all of our Founding Funders!

Your support for the Digital NEST is changing lives.

With the support of our Founding Funders, we joyfully claimed a $100,000 matching grant on November 30, pushing our fundraising to over $300,000.

Donations from those just like you are creating opportunities for youths in our own community. Imagine how inspiring and motivating your gift will be to the young people at the NEST. You are putting tools in their hands that will transform their lives.

The digital divide remains vast, and your help is needed now! Donate today and change someone’s life.
