With BoxWorks Digital happening around the time of Back-to-School and many classrooms shifting to fully virtual or hybrid environments, we've decided to focus our annual internal Back-to-School fundraising efforts on the digital divide, which has been emphasized by nonprofits and schools during COVID-19.  This divide perpetuates and deepens socioeconomic disparities for underserved communities.  A 2015 study found that 35% of lower-income households with children in school didn’t have access to internet at home. We're partnering with Human-I-T ( who specifically focuses on shrinking the digital divide by providing devices, internet access and digital literacy training.  Internally, our goal is to kick off our fundraising strong and raise $15K which can provide more than 100 refurbished laptops or 150 hot spots for students in underserved communities.
