Silicon Slopes Steering Committee for

Computers for Kids UTAH

Bridging the Digital Divide Together

What will the Steering Committee Duties be?

Computers for Kids, Inc. (CFK) is looking to establish a Steering Committee in the Silicon Slopes. The Steering Committee partnership will consist of Business, Academic, City, and Community Partnerships.

Our goals for the Steering Committee focus will be as followed:

  • Establish long-term partnerships with local companies in the Silicon Slopes area to donate tax-deductible surplus or overstock computer equipment to the Computers for Kids Program to benefit UTAH kids.

  • Establish an "Area of Needs" list. Determine which segment of an area has the lowest Student to Computers ratio. 

  • Help find internet providers to offer inexpensive WI-Fi rates for students.

  • Marketing: Help to get the word out! Inform businesses and communities about the program. 

  • Establish Fundraising Events like:

    • Community Donation Drives.

    • Golf Tournaments

    • Charity Auctions

    • Travel Raffle

    • 5K Walk/Run

    • Galas

    • In-House Competitions for Business

  • Fundraising events will help fund:

    • Scholarship Fund  

    • Internet Fund
