With your generous donation during this ONE DAY of giving, Per Scholas NCR will be better equipped to provide free technology based training and professional development to the thousands of talented individuals from overlooked communities. By matching these future IT professionals with employer partners, we are directly impacting the community and providing sustainable careers in technology to many.

We expanded our course offerings to include IT Security training for students interested in pursuing careers in security risk management and asset protection.
That’s not all! If you’d like to get in on the fun, there will be a series of Social Media activities to participate in that we can’t wait to share with you.

Do More 24TM is more than just one day of fundraising…it’s the next generation of online giving. It’s a local movement that is leveraging the power of the crowd to support our region’s nonprofits through focused, online giving directed at creating maximum impact. We are building an innovative platform that will allow donation tracking and progress, give users the opportunity to see who else is participating, and experience something you have never seen before: real people feeling the effect of giving in real time.
