The Tech 4 Learning Fundraising Campaign

During these tough and unprecedented times, there are millions in need of different support programs. The government in their capacity is trying to alleviate the situation, however cannot do it all on their own, not in a timely manner to say the least.

Al Aroud Group, CABC Patron, has recently launched the Tech 4 Learning fundraising campaign through Venture X Canada in partnership with the Peel District School Board (PDSB) and Toronto Foundation. The Tech 4 Learning fundraising campaign is aimed at helping students and families in need who don’t have access to a computing device to support their learning from home, since school boards across Ontario begin distance learning.

A recent estimate by PDSB indicates that there are at least 10,000 students in the Peel Region who lack a computing device and/or an internet connection. Venture X Canada is donating 1000 but still has 9000 to go, and urgently needs your support.

There are two ways you can help:

1. Donate working computing devices. Venture X will pick up all the devices so no one has to leave their home.

2. Donate money into the fund set up by Toronto Foundation. Toronto Foundation is the official charity partner that will receive all the monetary donations and ensure that the funds are granted to PDSB.
