The RTF works to empower our future technology leaders and narrow the digital divide between rural and urban areas. Donate Now

Make a Donation.

Our ability to help more students is directly tied to your support through our fundraising efforts. Your donation will go directly supporting rural and economically disadvantaged students by providing computer science and engineering equipment, curriculum, scholarships, and assistive technology in classrooms and libraries across the country. These programs support students in their pursuit of a better life through technology education.

One Time Donation with PayPal

How We Use Your Donations

The Rural Technology Fund relies heavily on volunteers who are passionate about creating opportunities for students who love technology. Because of this, we are able to pledge that the vast majority of donor contributions will go towards funding our missions and providing resources for the teachers and students we serve.

Your donations will support:

  • Creating maker spaces, electronics labs, and programming classes in public schools.
  • Equipping teachers with the skills to develop future technology leaders
  • Providing scholarships to students pursuing technology-related degrees.
  • Outfitting public school libraries with technical education resources

Even the smallest donation can make a huge different to a classroom. Consider the following:

  • $10 buys a handful of resistors and capacitors that will teach students circuitry fundamentals
  • $20 buys an electronics breadboard that a student can use to learn to solder circuits
  • $30 buys a Raspberry Pi microcomputer that a student can use to learn how to program
  • $50 buys an Arduino kit that will teach a student how to develop human-machine interfaces
  • $300 buys a robotics kit that allows a student to write code that comes to life
  • $500 buys a 3D printer that will allow students to develop design and engineering skills
  • $1000 helps start a school or library makerspace that exposes students to many forms of computer engineering
  • $5000 builds a complete library STEM education program complete with summer camps, after school programs, and check-out devices students can take home to continue their learning. 

These things provide an additional opportunity for students to find the spark that ignites their passion for technology or fan the flame of curiosity that already exists within them. Your donations will make a real and tangible impact on an entire classroom full of students, and many more over time. Check out the impact we’ve already had!

The success of the Rural Technology Fund is highly reliant upon donations from businesses as well as individuals. If your business would like to partner with the RTF, we have several ways we can share the news about the good work you’ll help us do. Don’t hesitate to e-mail us.
