Get Our Kids Connected Fund

About This Fund

For $300, contributors can give the gift of connectivity, which will provide students with a laptop and an internet connection for 12 months. APS has identified a pilot group of 1,000 students with an immediate need, which sets the fundraising goal at $300,000.

APS has partnered with Comcast to launch the Get Our Kids Connected initiative to support low-income families. Through its Internet Essentials program, Comcast will work with APS to solicit financial support from individuals and organizations to sponsor students with low-cost, high-speed internet and computers.
