ZeroDivide helps underserved communities realize the transformative power of technology to achieve social progress and opportunity.
Through the Community Leadership Project, ZeroDivide was funded to help grantees succeed through better use of technology.

Phase 1 (2009-2012): $300,000
Phase 2 (current): $400,000
During Phase 1, ZeroDivide offered each organization an online survey to assess its current technology capacity. With this better understanding, participants gained ideas on how to improve their technology capacity and access resources (many of which are free or highly subsidized). A set of 20 organizations was selected to each receive a technology mini-grant of $5,000. Each grantee received an additional in-depth assessment that lead to the creation of a technology plan, enhanced technology and consulting support.
ZeroDivide offered a series of regional trainings to all Community Leadership Project grantees. These sessions addressed specific technology needs among the group, and facilitated ongoing networking and peer learning.
Now, in Phase 2, ZeroDivide is again providing basic technology assessments to all CLP grantees. It is also offering a hands-on, in-depth technology assessment program to a subset of approximately 25 community grantees. The organization will work with each intermediary funder to help offer specific, additional technology programs and services to community grantees (and other nonprofits if space is available).
