SBC Foundation Launches 2005 SBC Excelerator
Technology Grant Program

The SBC Foundation (  http://www.sbc.com/foundation ),
the philanthropic arm of SBC  Communications, Inc., has
announced the opening of its 2005 SBC  Excelerator tech-
nology grants program, which will award $6 million  in
competitive technology-related grants to enable nonprofit
organizations in SBC's operating areas to integrate
technology into  their ongoing operations and community
outreach.

SBC  Excelerator grants will help nonprofit organizations
improve their  operations and build stronger communities
through:

Internet Access -- Networked, high-speed access to the
Internet and  email;

Online Outreach -- Interactive, Web-based  applications
that support activities such as service  delivery,
volunteer recruiting, and e-fundraising;

Data  Networking -- Network connectivity enabling easy
sharing of database  applications and information systems;
and

Staff  Development -- Technology training programs for
nonprofit staff  members.

To qualify for an SBC Excelerator grant, an  organization's
major focus and project must emphasize education,  commun-
ity development, health and human services, or arts  and
culture. Grant funds may be used for data communications
services, hardware, software, technology training, person-
nel, and  application development.

One-year grants will range from $2,500 to  $25,000.
Collaborations by two or more organizations will be
considered for one-year grants of up to $50,000.

Grants will not  be awarded for projects outside SBC
operating areas. (SBC is the  primary telecommunications
provider in Arkansas, California,  Connecticut, Illinois,
Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada,  Ohio,
Oklahoma, Texas, and Wisconsin.)

Interested  organizations can apply for a 2005 grant by
downloading a copy of the  2005 Request for Proposals
from the SBC Web site.
