Working on Closing the Digital Divide

Closing the Digital Divide is a program pioneered by the Northern California Gateway Rotary Club because of a heartfelt need in the Pittsburg education community.

Over 800 households in Pittsburg do not have internet connectivity and that problem was highlighted during COVID-19 when children were dismissed from schools and distance Learning had to be done at home. This digital divide demanded action, so we partnered with Pittsburg Unified School District, provided initial seed money, and are now reaching out to community members and organizations to assist in this effort. 100% of the tax deductible donated funds will go directly to closing the digital divide. All funds raised will help bring free internet service to families. The funds will be set aside as restricted funds solely for that purpose.

Comcast has also partnered with us and will be offering low cost internet service; your donation will help us cover the cost for students.

We ask for your heartfelt support. Our students deserve this. Make a donation HERE https://www.pittsburg.k12.ca.us/domain/2722
