Vermont Business Magazine Merchants Bank awards Technology for Tomorrow a $2,000.00 grant to help support T4T's programs that bring free technology education to under-served Vermonters. Technology For Tomorrow (T4T) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that began with a group of high school students from South Burlington who utilized their computer skills to serve their community through free technology training. Since its founding in 2012, Technology for Tomorrow has worked with students from high schools across Vermont to coordinate educational technology workshops.
Cheryl Houchens, Vice President of Compliance and Community Reinvestment, said of Merchants Bank's support of T4T: "Merchants Bank is thrilled to be able to partner with Technology for Tomorrow to provide technology education to under-served communities across Vermont. Technology for Tomorrow's programing, which utilizes volunteer students and professionals to actively engage in providing free technology education, results in vibrant and inclusive local communities. Merchants Bank is proud to be a part of this effort."
The funds from the Merchants Bank grant will be used to support T4T in expanding its sphere of impact. Currently, T4T is exploring programs to bring technology education to the refugee and new American communities in Vermont. Through the support of community-focused organizations like Merchants Bank, T4T will be able to increase its number of workshops and expand its reach to more Vermonters.
