Future Shop Gives $500,000 to Schools Across Canada to Update Their Technology

Posted by Techvibes NewsDesk

Future Shop this week announced that a record-number of high schools across Canada will be updating their outdated technology thanks to over $500,000 in donations from the company's Future Generation Tech Lab program. More than 160 schools coast-to-coast submitted applications for funding and 20 of them will receive donations ranging from $10,000 to $50,000.

"Access to working technology is a critical element to students' learning and development, but not all schools are able to keep their equipment current. We heard this loud and clear in all the applications we received whether it was for a simple ask to replace 10 year old computers or bring in new technology allowing schools to take programs to the next level," said Andrea Farnell, Community Relations Manager, Future Shop. " Future Shop is excited to see how these schools will use their grants to inspire, motivate and empower students to do more, learn more and achieve more in the classroom."
