Dear NDIA Supporter,
“When is the bus coming?”  “Does my child have homework?”  “Where’s the cheapest gas around here?”  “Is my paycheck in the bank yet?” 

For the millions of Americans who are not online, answering these questions is not as easy as checking their smartphones or computers.  They don’t have the skills, the devices or broadband service to let them take advantage of all the ways that education, work, family and leisure activities are moving online.  

Organizations that work to help overcome these barriers to “digital inclusion” have joined in a national movement to make sure that the benefits of being online are shared by all of us.  The National Digital Inclusion Alliance is the voice of its 208 affiliates at the national level, engaging with federal agencies and departments, other national stakeholders, the media and industry on behalf of local digital inclusion programs.  NDIA also enables sharing of tools, ideas and best practices across boundaries of time and distance. 

What does this mean in practice?

Frankly, NDIA operates on a shoestring.  We want to build our funding base so that we can be there – quickly and effectively – when issues are examined and decisions are made.  

Every donation matters.  Please take a moment to show that you are invested in creating an equitable digital future by clicking here to contribute to NDIA.  Your donation is tax-deductible.

With appreciation,
Laura Breeden
