MicrosoftFounded in 1975, Microsoft (Nasdaq "MSFT") is the worldwide leader in software, services and solutions that help people and businesses realize their full potential.
Microsoft Corporation's relationship with BGCA began in 1999 when it funded, in collaboration with NBA superstar Shaquille O'Neal, a $1.6 million pilot program to create technology centers at 15 Clubs across the country. In 2000, through the generosity of Microsoft, Club Tech was launched nationwide to reach some 4 million Club members, and give them equal footing with their more affluent or technically advanced counterparts.
Since the program's inception, Boys & Girls Clubs have received more than $100 million worth of Microsoft-donated software and more than 7,000 Club staff have participated in technology training. This translates to better access to technology for Club members, providing them more opportunities to succeed in school and in the future workforce.
ComcastIn January 2010, Comcast Corporation, The Comcast Foundation and Boys & Girls Clubs of America entered into a four-year partnership. Generous support of $39 million will provide in-kind airtime and media assets to BGCA and technology tools, resources and programs to Boys & Girls Clubs and their members throughout the nation.
Comcast, one of the nation's leading providers of entertainment, information and communication products and services, has three focus areas for its community giving: promoting community service, building tomorrow's leaders and expanding digital literacy. With the latter in mind, Comcast will air public service announcements promoting BGCA's Club Tech digital literacy program to some 23.6 million cable customers. In addition, Comcast will provide funding and in-kind services to support Club Tech in Boys & Girls Clubs. In support of this effort, Comcast will deliver the Digital Connectors Program, a One Economy Corporation turnkey program, to select Clubs.
Since 1963, Comcast has sought to strengthen the communities it serves by volunteering time, providing financial support and partnering with community-based organizations. Comcast works hard to build and strengthen relationships to make a difference, improve neighborhoods and create lasting results. Join the Comcast conversation to Dream Big!
