The Columbia Basin Trust has announced $1 million in funding for non-profit organizations to update critical technology.

The new Non-profit Tech Grants program will allow eligible non-profits to apply for funding that can be used to buy and install things like desktop and laptop computers, tablets, software and hardware like servers, printers, scanners and other related office tech.

“The work of non-profits is an important contributor to the social, economic and environmental well-being of Basin communities, and helping them to enhance their organizational capacity is one of the Trust’s strategic priorities,” said Tim Hicks, Trust senior manager for delivery of benefits, in a press release. “That’s why we’re providing non-profit organizations with grants to help address administrative, communication and capacity needs through technology.”

The program is a one-time intake and the deadline is Tuesday, Jan. 30 at 2 p.m. PST.

There is no project funding limit but the Trust anticipates “that individual project grants will likely range between $1,000 and $15,000.”
