Ronald McDonald House won $20,000 makeover in “Technology JumpStart Your Nonprofit” contest
RALEIGH, NC -- Milner, Inc., a technology company and full service provider of innovative office solutions, has just completed a technology makeover for Ronald McDonald House of Durham, one of the 2014 “Technology JumpStart Your Nonprofit” contest winners. The makeover is valued at $20,000.
Ronald McDonald House of Durham was one of two organizations to win the contest. Both organizations were selected based on public voting for a nonprofit with 15 or less employees and 16 or more employees, respectively.
After a thorough assessment of the needs and existing technology at Ronald McDonald House, Milner tailored a custom technology makeover that included 5 desktop computers, 3 laptop computers, 3 monitors and 8 wireless mice, installation and mounting a front door monitor, installation and mounting a faceplate to the TV controller, implementation of digital signage and project management services.
This high-impact gift will strengthen Ronald McDonald House’s ability to provide families with a home away from home while their children receive services at local hospitals. With enhanced technology, they are better able to serve their families more efficiently and effectively, and can adapt and respond more quickly to the changing needs of the families they support.
“The technology solutions provided by Milner have positively impacted the experience of our guest families and volunteers, as well as have increased the efficiency of our staff. We are so grateful for the community’s support through their votes which helped us win the wonderful technology grant,” said Ronald McDonald House of Durham’s Executive Director, Oie Osterkamp.
Milner Executive Vice President Charlie Gibson said, “Milner feels privileged to give back to the organizations who are dedicated to serving our communities. This is our way of thanking the Ronald McDonald House of Durham for the work they do for our communities.”
Now in its third year, Technology JumpStart Your Nonprofit has run in Atlanta, GA and Raleigh-Durham, NC with great success. The program recently launched in Tampa, FL, with voting beginning February 16th, 2015. To learn more about the JumpStart contest or winners, or Milner, please visit www.milner.com/jumpstart.
