and i dont want a long drawn out answer, lol. imisidro
Im interested in starting computer training for my community? I also do well in marketing, graphic design, psychology/sociology, and music… so what ya suggest?
Here are some sources:
Federal grants to nonprofits (technical assistance and services) or search by Beneficiary –> non profits http://126.96.36.199/pls/portal30/CATALOG.FUNCTIONAL_PROGRAM_TXT_RPT.SHOW?p_arg_names=func_cat_cd&p_arg_values=CS
Foundation Center (subscribe to them for one month and mine their database as much as you can) http://fconline.fdncenter.org/
Provides support to Community-Based Technology and Learning Center (CTLC) organizations including Nonprofit—in the United States, 501(c)(3) designation—or a nongovernmental organization; Government funded and operated—a nonprofit organization that receives government funding or is a partner with a governmental; and schools.
A non profit I helped that provides computer training (similar to what you are envisioning) got Microsoft to provide computers and software for free. Verizon provided the DSL for free. Check corporations such as Dell Foundation http://www.dell.com/content/topics/global.aspx/corp/foundation/en/index?c=us&l=en&s=corp
Hope that is short enough for you :o)
