Digital NEST members working together on laptop

Digital NEST is an uncommon approach to the common needs of an impoverished and underserved community and its youth. Through its proven programs, Digital NEST steers young people toward opportunity, empowers them through training to fulfill their potential, and directs them toward a healthy, hopeful, and successful future for themselves and their community.

You can support Digital NEST through an online donation, creative ways to give, and planned giving. By supporting Digital NEST you are investing in the future of an entire community and successive generations of families, employees, business owners, and leaders.

Why your gift matters

For young people living in rural and underserved California communities, diminished educational opportunities are compounded by the lack of access to technology –even technology so basic it is taken for granted by young people in more prosperous circumstances. This disparity places underserved youth and young adults at a perpetual disadvantage in getting the education and training they need to be successful at college and competitive in the job market; to achieve the success that would lift their standard of living and that of their community.

At Digital NEST, we believe talented youth and young adults should be given the opportunity to succeed regardless of financial circumstances. Generous individuals, corporations, and foundations help us provide free access to technologies and training many in our community would not otherwise have.

Donations from a diverse group of supporters are essential in order to provide high-quality programs, technologies, and workspace. Please, make a difference for youth and community by making a gift to Digital NEST now.

Digital NEST is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, federal tax ID #46-5757256. Contributions are tax-deductible.
