This is a great organization and wonderful cause. As somebody who runs a technology-based company, I have always felt that technology (along with education) is prerequisite to any opportunity.
Kramden does a fantastic job with a truly admirable goal. Wonderful environment, dedicated staff
and volunteers, highly efficient. But the best reward for all is being able to provide such a critical instrument to those who would otherwise go without, often presenting a lifelong obstacle.
I've worked with a number of groups, but this is clearly one of the best, most productive, and most efficient.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing how it makes a difference to individuals, and lots of them; to seeing how efficiently a nonprofit can run; to seeing the satisfication and enjoyment of staff, volunteers, and recipients.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make it much bigger. It's a model for how groups, especially non-profits, should operate.

As a Board Member of Kramden Institute since its initial setup, I have seen tremendous growth of this organization with well over 4,000 volunteers, including many local Geeks from high school age to seniors having a place to ply their craft while helping thousands of kids in need.Kramden pulls together a surplus of PCs headed for recycling and extends their useful lives by a few years while getting them into the homes of students who cannot afford computers. It is a win-win. In addition to Kramden's amazing awardees, all chosen because of their hard work in school, Kramden has amazing volunteers, meeting every week at the Wednesday worknights and monthly at our Geek-A-Thon and other activities and bringing tremendous energy to the organization. A volunteer management team of about 15 'supergeeks' and a small core staff run the show. This organization, now having passed 7,250 PCs donated to deserving schoolkids, uses almost all of its resources on its programs, not on a large staff (we only have 3 paid employees) and overhead. BRAVO

The Great!

seeing the awardees and their families as their new home computers are demonstrated and set up. Wow.

Seek public funding. We have not done that in our first 7 years...
