When completing your application, it is important that you clearly describe your program’s activities, training, objectives, outcomes, and overall needs. Applications will only receive consideration if the following program elements are in place and you clearly describe:
- Your program’s achievable goals and objectives
- A plan for managing your proposed project
- Your organization’s access to technical support
- How the organization and the community will benefit from the project
A copy of your organization’s proof of Federal non-profit status (501c3) must be faxed or e-mailed to the National Cristina Foundation along with your application. This is not a requirement if you are a public school or government agency.
It is highly recommended that applicants have their own functioning website in order to fully participate in all services available from NCF.
Acceptance into the Cristina Network does not guarantee immediate placement of donated equipment will occur.
If your application is accepted, you will receive an Award of Property Agreement that lists the conditions regarding the receipt of equipment and its use. This document must be signed by a designated executive and returned to NCF before your organization can be included in our donation portals or you become eligible to operate the NCF technology donation system on your own website.
