G.A.I.N. – Powered by Lowe’s
Apparo is connecting nonprofits to technology through G.A.I.N. by matching Coca-Cola Consolidated volunteer team with Digi-Bridge, who will work with them to create and implement a new technology plan.
Digi-Bridge is a federally recognized nonprofit on a mission to spark interest and passion in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) learning, ensuring that students have the opportunities and skills to succeed in a rapidly changing world by fostering curiosity, creativity, exploration, persistence, and resilience.
Apparo’s G.A.I.N. (Growth, Agility and Innovation for Nonprofits) Grant Program provides nonprofit participants with the tools, training and other support they need to implement and sustain their technology and process improvements. G.A.I.N. delivers a one-year journey of technology and process improvement to a cohort of nonprofits to help them overcome their technology challenges and amplify their nonprofit impact. The G.A.I.N. program is generously sponsored by Lowe’s.
In this phase of their G.A.I.N. journey, Apparo has matched Digi-Bridge to a skilled volunteer team from Coca-Cola Consolidated. This volunteer team will work with Digi-Bridge to document opportunities for improvements in their current technology and help with implementation strategies for provided technology recommendations.
