What Is Gift1?

Gift1 is a pay-it-forward program created to put tablets in the hands of those that need them most, from school children in an impoverished country to a struggling family trying to stay connected with a sick relative in the hospital – anyone who can benefit from mobile technology. With your participation and sponsorship from Powernet, we can bridge the digital divide and improve lives in our community and around the world.

How Do I Participate in Gift1?

All you have to do is purchase a tablet priced at $150 or more, select the organization you want to donate a tablet to from a list of pre-approved “favored recipients”, and we’ll donate a 7-inch tablet to that organization. It’s that easy!

Why Should I Gift1?

Access to tablets and technology in general can have a big impact on people’s lives. Whether it’s supplementing formal education, providing access to informal education (news, for example), providing a method of communication, or simply giving users exposure and experience with a technology and programs that are becoming increasingly essential to know and understand, your donation can play a major role in improving someone’s quality of life.
