Nonprofits staff and volunteers often brainstorm great ideas but lack the resources to operationalize them with the latest technology.
Alabama’s Dream Big technology grant is designed to combine your ideas with organizational strategy, tech know-how, technology and match funding. It’s simple: Describe your situation, challenge or problem --and outline your solution; there's probably a way technology can help you to manage it strategically and help your nonprofit better serve its constituents.
TechBridge is a link between technology and 501(c)(3) organizations. Our nonprofit technology specialists have helped thousands of nonprofits like yours --shelters, food pantries, after school programs, workforce development programs, justice programs, anti-human trafficking programs and many others. These grants operationalize nonprofits’ "wish lists" or their strategic plans through technology. Nonprofits re-imagine donor management, client journey tracking, client experience measurements, improved client in-take and on-boarding, operationalized strategic plan and other innovative ideas to improve how your nonprofit works.
Alabama's Dream Big grant will combine strategy and technology with your idea to address the situation your nonprofit believes could be done differently, more efficiently and effectively. If you are able to articulate a problem and outline a possible solution, there's probably a way technology can manage it strategically and help your nonprofit serve its constituents even better. The Dream Big Grant is available to help us make it a reality.
April 23 - OPEN: Applications can be submitted beginning April 23, 2020.
June 4 - CLOSED: Nonprofits must submit applications before June 4, 2020 at 5:00 PM CT
Our experienced TechBridge teams will evaluate your idea for estimate costs. Your job is to describe the idea and how why it matters to your organization and express how your mission aligns with the TechBridge focus on breaking the cycle of generational poverty. Nonprofit organizations may qualify for grant funds of usually $5,000 up to $30,000 in this 80/20 matching grant, meaning TechBridge funds 80% of the project and your nonprofit funds 20% through its other funders.
