Communities

As a global technology provider and corporate citizen, we see firsthand how a lack of access to quality education and technology can prevent people from reaching their full potential. We apply our technology, expertise, funding and volunteerism toward helping communities overcome challenges and thrive.

“How we use our funding, our technology, and our talented people can truly be a transformative force of good in our world.”
