Developed out of a trending conversation on the Philanthropy Exchange (PhilEx), the Council invites you to join a member-only peer-led discussion of how foundations are supporting internet access for students and families as schools, businesses, and communities struggle with the impacts of COVID-19.

Join peers from across the country in a discussion focused on: 

  • How are foundations investing in internet access, in order to support students through virtual learning & school shutdowns?
  • How have foundations been increasing internet access for isolated and BIPOC communities?
  • How are foundations setting up funds to support broadband voucher programs and other digital access intiiatives? (CARES Act and FDIC funding dedicated to expanding internet access may also be discussed)
  • How do foundations apply a DEI lens to their digital access funding/programming?
