Donations from community members are used immediately in several ways:
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 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 & 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.
