EWEEKs Excellence Awards program not only acknowledges technology advances but also supports organizations that leverage technology to perform community outreach.
Vendors pay a fee of $150 each to enter any number of eligible products in the Excellence Awards program. After program expenses, eWEEK donates funds to nonprofit organizations that use technology to support youth and underserved communities. Since the Excellence Awards programs inception in 2000, eWEEK has donated almost $100,000 to nonprofit organizations.
Last year, eWEEK donated funds to Youth Tech Entrepreneurs, iMentor and Plugged In. A donation was also made to the Make A Wish Foundation.
