Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To provide 10,000 additional computers and 6months -1 year of internet to homebound seniors and veterans

To be able to fully afford to donate Windows 7 laptops to every family who applies to our holiday program this year. Previously we had only be able to afford 40-50.

To raise $150,000 to afford to provide these services to those who are homebound and disabled and may not be able to "work" in a traditional manner.
We also want to hold 10 classes each year to learn how to keep their computers safe and the proper settings to use.

WITS will be partnering with more major Schools and cities to reach more of their families and those in need

We will be writing grants
We will be reaching out to local businesses that support veterans and those in need.

We have been doing this for 12 years, we have already proven we have the capability to do this. We just want to expand our program to reach more people.

We have held 3 classes for computer training and safety.
We have distributed over 2000 computers so far this year.

We havent been able to provide homebound services to seniors and veterans

We havent been able to afford the free $40 per computer licensing for Microsoft
