The Jared Polis Foundation is committed to enhancing technology learning opportunities for Coloradoâ€™s children. Through its partnership with the Community Computer Connection, computers donated by individuals and corporations are refurbished and distributed to schools and nonprofits for a small administrative fee. Based on feedback received from many recipients, the foundation has created a technology mini-grant program to enhance and expand the utility of these computers or other existing classroom technology. Grants for up to $1,500 may be requested for hardware, such as digital or video cameras, interactive whiteboards, and interactive response systems, or to purchase software, technology curriculum, or pay technology conference registration fees. Teacher applicants can request tablets and Chrome-books, but they should not request wi-fi access or capital improvements to support technology. Because the Community Computer Connection provides computers, requests may not be made for laptop or desktop computers.Teachers can request technology for themselves only. Please do not apply on behalf of colleagues in your school; they need to request technology directly in order that the review committee can assess how they will utilize the technology as well as their experience using the technology.
