Ashford University’s Parent Company, Bridgepoint Education, Donates Computer Equipment to Computers 2 SD Kids Organization
As part of its continuing efforts to support children and education in its hometown, Ashford University’s parent company, Bridgepoint Education, donated computers and technology equipment to San Diego-based non-profit organization Computers 2 SD Kids. Representatives from Bridgepoint’s business technology services team presented the company’s donation on Thursday, September 1. The Bridgepoint donation will be given to low-income families that need technology to enhance their children’s academic success.
“As a provider of higher education, Bridgepoint Education recognizes the importance of providing children with the tools needed to achieve academic success in school,” said Jennifer Love Bruce, associate vice president of community relations at Bridgepoint Education. “We are proud to donate computer technology equipment to Computers 2 SD Kids and support the organization’s mission of promoting technological literacy to underprivileged children and their families in San Diego.”
Computers 2 SD Kids assists qualified children and their families in obtaining computers, software, training, and support in order to help them become computer literate and increase access to educational, occupational, and financial resources. The prime goal of Computers 2 SD Kids is to place the needed computers into the homes of the 28% of San Diego County families who cannot afford computer technology. With the help of the organization’s Technology Grant Program, applicants are reviewed for socio-economic status and family dynamics. Accepted candidates are contacted to receive training and a computer.
