Meet the Winner of Sunstate’s $10,000 Tech Makeover Giveaway for Arizona Nonprofits and Charities!
We are thrilled to announce that Arizona Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired has won Sunstate’s $10,000 Tech Makeover Giveaway! This incredible Phoenix-based organization has been helping to promote independence and enhance the lives of its clients since 1947, with programs ranging from ceramics and wood turning to adapted daily living skills and computers. In fact, ACBVI is one of only two organizations in the country that offer CompTIA A+ Certification courses for the visually impaired to establish careers in the IT field.
For the tech makeover, Sunstate will be installing a new server, switch and monitors to bring ACBVI’s decade-old technology up-to-date. The new tech will help increase network speeds, bolster network security and improve end user experience.
Sunstate CEO Nicole Edgington and Director of Technical Operations Stuart Hensley presented ACBVI with a check and spent time talking with the team and clients, learning about ACBVI’s mission and the challenges it has faced due to outdated technology.
The new tech will be installed in November, so stay tuned for the rest of the story!
