Our projects are a crucial vehicle for fulfilling our mission. FixNGive’s strategic focus revolves around data-driven projects and campaigns that aim to maximize our positive educational impact.
With the powerful support of our community, we organize diverse avenues through which we can obtain the resources needed to continue our work and expand the capacity we have to act on our objectives. We organize Computer & Accessories Drives - with the cooperation of other organizations such as SellYourMac and the Loveland Sustainability Council - in which we collect generous donations from our sponsors (individuals and organizations like you!) that we securely wipe of information, refurbish, and update with the latest software.
In addition, our members lead independent technology-fueled classes for students throughout various Cincinnati schools. We strive to complement and develop upon each school’s curriculum, providing all students with valuable experience in a friendly, curious environment. Through our efforts, we strive to supply as much opportunity to youth as possible, whether it be through physical donations or educational guidance.
FixNGive also organizes Symposiums in which audiences have the opportunity to hear from the most innovative Cincinnati startups, especially venture capital and tech companies. Participants enjoy a catered dinner and raffles for a variety of prizes while learning about internship and vocational opportunities. Companies purchase sponsorships and present attendees with promotions and exciting developments.
Currently, we are dedicating our efforts to research and strengthen our relationship with the Cincinnati Public Schools district in order to empirically determine the specific technological needs of each school. We are taking part in a campaign with CPS to provide computers and internet access, with the help of corporate sponsors, for students to use outside of class, in households. This enables students to reinforce lessons learned in class and explore their multiple educational interests and passions in the comfort of their home. We seek to provide at-home access in the most vulnerable neighborhoods within the system, including South Avondale. Simultaneously, we are working with teachers at multiple school districts to fulfill their classroom technological needs and incorporate tech in their curriculums for higher engagement and academic performance.
