Everyone On Madison A digital inclusion solution

Connectivity

Affordable home internet access is available to qualifying families. In Dane County Access from ATT, Internet Assist from Spectrum and Mobile Beacon from PCs for People are available, starting at $10 per month. Each program has different qualifications, pricing and speeds. The Public Service Commission has developed a tool for households to check program availability. Click below to go to the tool.

Computers

Everyone On Madison offers 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 offers free digital literacy workshops at Madison community centers and other anchor institutions. The workshops cover basic computer skills, consumer safety, internet privacy, email, cloud storage and basic office software. Workshops are offered in English and Spanish. Hmong translation is available at some 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 Money

Your donations help us offer free computer literacy classes, refurbish donated computers, and hold free device repair clinics for low-income families in Dane County. DANEnet is a nonprofit organization and financial contributions to the EOM project are tax-deductible.

Every donation helps, whether it’s $5 or $500. Your $100 donation buys a computer for a low-income family, and your $500 donation helps pay for a Fix-IT clinic! Click below to contribute.
