Donate: ways you can contribute to the mission of Technology Access Center

Donate

There are many ways you can contribute to the mission of Technology Access Center. Your monetary and in-kind gifts can make a great difference in the lives of your neighbors who need accessible technology to improve their everyday lives. Likewise, there are other avenues for support that we encourage you to consider.

No matter how you give to TAC, you can be assured your contribution will be used wisely to…

  • To acquire state of the art assistive technology devices and software for individuals to try out and determine if it meets their needs to achieve independence and their goals for education, employment, and community living
  • To help fund salaries for the specialized staff members who must have ongoing training, skills, and a vast knowledge of assistive technology for individuals of all ages and all disabilities
  • To help make individuals with disabilities, their family members, and teachers or other professionals who work with them aware of the availability and benefits of assistive technology

Wondering how to best support our clients’ current needs? Donors are encouraged to contact Center personnel to determine the most immediate needs for donations and to specify how their donation is to be used.

Thanks in advance  for your donation and being a part of making assistive technology services available for all middle Tennesseans to support their independence and participation in education, employment, and community life. As with all nonprofit organizations, the Technology Access Center personnel rely on donations to help meet the needs of middle Tennesseans of all ages with all types of disabilities for assistive technology services.  The members of the Center staff currently generate 99% of the funding each year to provide these services through a federal and state funded grant and a service contract, grants from local foundations, fees for services, and fundraising events.  Although substantial, the funding is far from adequate to provide services for all those who need and can benefit from assistive technology. Donations are needed to both improve services and provide them for more individuals with disabilities in middle Tennessee.
