Chromebook Campaign news

At the onset of the COVID-19 Pandemic, The Education Foundation of Indian River County (EFIRC) committed to providing an emergency gift of $60,000 to the School District of Indian River County (SDIRC). This $60,000 was designated for the purchase of Chromebook computers to help insure that Indian River County students continued to have access to this critical technology tool.

Thanks to the generosity of many, via an online and social media based fundraising campaign, we were able to meet our committed goal of $60,000. With this funding, the SDIRC was able to purchase 185 Chromebooks for student use. These Chromebooks were immediately deployed for use among Indian River County students in grades 5-8.

The EFIRC is proud to have once again partnered with the SDIRC to insure that students in Indian River County have access to the technologies that are critical to success in today’s educational environment.
