Microsoft Corporation awards the Sacramento Children’s Home a $650,000 software grant
United Way California Capital Region certified nonprofit partner Sacramento Children’s Home (SCH) has received a generous donation from Microsoft – a $650,000 grant in the form of new computer software and licenses. This grant from Microsoft will not only allow SCH to update essential office and network software, but will bring the most recent technology to the residents and families served by the Sacramento Children’s Home. Residents will be able to use the upgraded software in their daily homework lab and afterschool programs, as well as for learning critical life skills – using email, writing a resume, searching for independent housing, etc.
Roy Alexander, CEO of the Sacramento Children’s Home, cannot emphasize enough what the corporate support means for SCH, “These are difficult times for everyone. This donation, and the generosity of its scope, will allow our vital resources to be focused on the needs of the children and families we serve, in lieu of utilizing our limited resources to stay current in our technological infrastructure, which is essential in the ever-changing, competitive economy that our families find themselves in.”
