Computers for Kids, Inc. (CFK) is a non-profit 501(C)(3) organization formed in 2002 that receives donated computers from individuals and businesses, then refurbishes and licenses them for distribution to students for their home use. As a part of this program, each student and the needs for home use are considered. Their mission is to offer Idaho students K to 21 the opportunity to access a variety of technological supports through their use of their own computer at home.

We are pleased to announce the establishment of a new program designed to increase the availability of high-quality refurbished computers AT NO CHARGE for Idaho students with disabilities in grades K thru 14 to use in the home. This program has been developed through a partnership between Computers for Kids, the Idaho State Department of Education: Special Education Team (ISDE), and the Idaho Assistive Technology Project (IATP).
The Foundation Center
Established in 1956 and today supported by close to 550 foundations, the Foundation Center is the leading source of information about philanthropy worldwide. Through data, analysis, and training, it connects people who want to change the world to the resources they need to succeed. The Center maintains the most comprehensive database on U.S. and, increasingly, global grantmakers and their grants — a robust, accessible knowledge bank for the sector. It also operates research, education, and training programs designed to advance knowledge of philanthropy at every level. Thousands of people visit the Center's web site each day and are served in its five regional library/learning centers and its network of 470 funding information centers located in public libraries, community foundations, and educational institutions nationwide and around the world.
