Comcast Internet Essentials Partners With CNPE

Internet Essentials from Comcast

In partnership with the Center for Nonprofit Excellence, Comcast recently acted as the presenting sponsor in the development of the New Mexico Nonprofit Principles & Practices Guide. CNPE is proud to work with Comcast, whose Internet Essentials program provides affordable internet and low-cost computers to families in need.

The Internet Essentials program is based on the philosophy that "opportunity starts at digital inclusion" — that everyone should be able to access the internet at home. The mission of the seven-year-old program is to "close the Digital Divide" and provide access for all.

Comcast has worked with educational, governmental and nonprofit partners to connect more than 1,500,000 low-income families to the internet. A network of over 2,000 volunteers and over 9,000 nonprofit and educational partners have helped increase the visibility of the program, and Comcast has provided more than $500 million in support of digital literacy training.

Internet Essentials programs support families, housing assistance, veterans, seniors and community college students.
