 Donate to HCS EdConnect

Hamilton County Schools EdConnect, powered by EPB, will provide no-cost high-speed internet to every student in the district who qualifies for free or reduced lunch. The program will connect 28,500 students in 17,000 homes across Hamilton County.

The program has received generous support from Hamilton County, the city of Chattanooga, BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Foundation and the Smart City Venture Fund, which includes Benwood Foundation, Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga, Footprint Foundation and Robert L. And Katherina Maclellan Foundation. But, we still need to raise a portion of the cost to connect all eligible students.

Since 2015, Tech Goes Home Chattanooga has served over 4,580 people in Chattanooga and Hamilton County. The program has partnered with over 100 schools, churches, municipal partners, and other non-profit organizations to implement our digital literacy courses.

The need has now outpaced our current capacity. Through your help, we can continue to narrow the digital divide in Chattanooga and Hamilton County.
