What are Tech Community Partners?

Though our core mission is to help students, we understand that many people need assistance to bridge the digital divide. In order to help meet this need, Kramden has developed the Tech Community Partners program specifically for non-student populations.

If you are a client receiving services from any of the non-profit agencies listed to the right, then you are eligible to obtain a reduced-cost desktop or laptop from Kramden (desktop computer fees are $50 and $100 for laptops). Every computer comes with Endless OS (the default OS for all Kramden computers) which includes LibreOffice, Internet browsers (Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox) and over 60 pre-loaded educational, science, and learning applications.
