You might check into local Rotary and other organizations, but I have found that most funding agencies do not seek to fund schools simply to meet their legal obligations for providing computing access to their own students, faculty, and staff with disabilities. Therefore, you might want to look at an internal source of funds or to consider a broader goal for the use of the equipment and software in order to appeal to an external funding source.

Hello All,

We are looking into upgrading our assistive technology available to students for testing, general use, and for lending out. Like many of your campuses, funds are very limited. Do you have any suggestions of what organizations, agencies, etc. might have grant funding opportunities or potential to assist? Any suggestions or ideas are welcome.
