We are the Undivide Project (www.theundivideproject.org) a newly founded organization committed to not just bridging the digital divide, but helping communities use the Internet to build resilience, adapt and create opportunities for themselves. This is a start up nonprofit that is in need of guidance to fundraise and scale. Our in-kind partnerships are impressive: ESRI as a mapping partner, Team Rubicon to help with community advocacy and training programs, some funding for operations raised in a Gitcoin round. However, we are 95% bootstrapped at this point.
We are looking for two volunteer board members with management and fundraising experience as well as a passion for the Internet and/or disaster risk reduction. The role(s) would be to help us organize and create a two year work and engagement plan, find funding opportunities as we await our federal 501(c)(3) status (we have our state certification) and identify new partners.

About The Undivide Project

The Undivide Project is the start of a body of work focused on undoing the so-called "Digital Divide" by working directly with communities. The first phase of our work will be directed towards understanding the impacts of digital divestment. We will offer bespoke solutions and implementation support reflective of community conditions. The next phase of the Undivide Project will focus on building community resilience using Internet tools. After that... we will let our community partners lead the way.
This is an an organization dedicated to creating climate resilience in underserved communities via Internet infrastructure and service centered IoT solutions. There are two initial pilot communities. One in the Washington, DC Metro Area and one in rural Louisiana. The goal is to understand the needs of communities with very different needs and offer a more informed view of digital divide issues. Next, we will consider a variety of U.S. and global communities to continue our work around the digital divide, access and resilience.
This is a Virtual Opportunity with no fixed address.
