Kansas City’s First Digital Inclusion Fund

The Kansas City Digital Inclusion Fund is a $1 million fund that is supposed to give money to non-for-profit 501(c)3 charities within the metropolitan area who help Kansas Citians get on-line, direct residents to affordable computers, help students learn how to do online research, and teach people computer skills. Hopefully this fund is a first successful step to closing the digital divide here in Kansas City. A quarter of Kansas City residents don’t have broadband access at home and almost 20% of Kansas Citians don’t know how to use the internet at all. The Fund is managed by the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation. Here’s a link to The Star’s story: http://www.kansascity.com/2013/08/14/4411448/kansas-citians-create-a-fund-to.html
