The need for youth to be tech-savvy and develop the 21st-century skills to set them up for future career success is more important than ever. Yet too many teens have little or no access to technology and as a result, they fall behind their peers.
At Best Buy and the Best Buy Foundation, we’re on a mission to provide teens with opportunities where they can develop tech skills that will inspire future education and career choices.
We strive to leverage our local community presence, our technology resources and our talented employees to provide new and creative programs to serve our communities.
The Best Buy Foundation strengthens communities through national and local grant programs. Please read the guidelines to ensure your organization meets our eligibility requirements or refer to the instructions to assist you with the process. Paper applications are not accepted.
