NASCIO Members and Conference Attendees Give Back to San Diego, Host City of the 2018 Annual Conference

 

LEXINGTON, Ky., Wednesday, November 7, 2018 —

Total donation of $12,445 provided to local San Diego organization

The National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) provided a $12,445 donation to the San Diego Futures Foundation (SDFF), a San Diego organization working to bridge the digital divide and improve lives by making information technology available to underserved populations.

Donations were collected during the NASCIO Annual Conference in San Diego through the Give Back program to thank the host community. NASCIO state, corporate and nonprofit members donated $7,445 through individual contributions and NASCIO provided a $5,000 donation.

“The donations from NASCIO will allow us to expand our training programs around digital literacy and digital inclusion.  In San Diego there are over 300,000 individuals who do not have access to technology or the internet and do not know how to use technology to improve their lives. Our mission is to make sure that everyone in San Diego County who desires the benefits that technology offers has the skills to do it,” said Gary Knight the Executive Director of the San Diego Futures Foundation. “With the generosity of NASCIO, we will be able to serve hundreds of new residents and provide them with the opportunities that most of us take for granted.”
