Everyone On Madison

A project of DANEnet that helps low-income households get affordable internet access, computers and skills to use both.
12,000 households in Dane County do not have home internet access.
Broadband and fluency with technology fuel economic growth, provide access to the world’s knowledge, and build stronger and more connected communities.
Employers, educators, businesses, healthcare providers, and civic institutions expect people to have access to computers and broadband connectivity.
With help from the local community, Everyone On Madison will connect 1,000 low-income households to the technology they need by the end of 2017.
Everyone On Madison A digital inclusion solution

Connectivity

Affordable home internet access is available to qualifying families. Connecting Madison will be available in the Darbo-Worthington, the Allied Dunn’s Marsh and the Brentwood neighborhoods starting at $9.99/month. For information about this service contact ResTech  at 608-663-3868. Many other options exist for low-income community members seeking low-cost home internet, click below to learn more.

Computers

Everyone On Madison offers free and low-cost desktop computers to eligible low-income households. Quality devices are donated by local businesses, refurbished by our partner Cascade Asset Management and deployed in the community by DANEnet staff. Recipients must participate in a computer class, provide proof of residency and meet certain income eligibility requirements.

Classes

DANEnet will offer free digital literacy workshops at Madison community centers and other anchor institutions. The workshops will cover basic computer skills, consumer safety, internet privacy, email, cloud storage and basic office software. Workshops will be offered in Spanish and with Hmong translation at some host sites. Contact DANEnet for our class schedule. Click for the class schedule.

Clinics

Device Fix IT clinics are to repair and support computers and hardware owned by households without the means to fix them. Adults can bring in their devices (smart phone, desktop, tower, laptop, etc.) and DANEnet staff and volunteers will help assess, fix and clean the devices. DANEnet will provide free recycling for items beyond their useful life. Click below for the schedule of upcoming clinics.
Everyone On Madison Get Involved

Give Devices

Everyone On Madison is seeking area businesses to donate computers. The donation can be done easily through your regular device refresh process or as a separate donation. Join local companies like CUNA Mutual Group, American Family Insurance and Old National Bank and help to solve this community problem. DANEnet will provide digital literacy training, ongoing support and ensure that income eligible families receive the computers. Click below to complete our contact form and a DANEnet staff will promptly reply.

Give Time

Tech savvy volunteers are needed to assist with both short term and one-time program needs. Volunteers can assist with digital literacy instruction or help with device fix it clinics. Regular volunteer responsiblities might include removing malware from a device, helping to do a privacy check on a computer, assisting someone to store files in the cloud or installing new memory. Click to complete the volunteer form.

Give Money

Financial contributions are needs to provide digital literacy classes, support host site partners and coordinate community volunteers. Financial contributions will also be used to refurbish, re-image and deploy the desktop computers in the community. DANEnet is a nonprofit organization and financial contributions to the project as tax-deductible. Click below to contribute.
