This week, Comcast announced it has awarded a $10,000 grant to the Hispanic Family Foundation in Nashville. The Middle Tennessee 501(c)(3) betters the quality of life for the area’s many Hispanic residents.
The grant will support “Youth in Robotics.” This program exposes students supported by the organization to robotics as a potential career option.
The Youth in Robotics program engages students ages 13 to 17 in classes focusing on robotics, programming, and coding. The money from the grant will be put to use to directly support the program. Robotics kits and program materials will be purchased with the grant money. This funding will also go toward hiring personnel to oversee this program.
Regional Senior Vice President at Comcast Jason Gumbs shared, “We are proud to support the Hispanic Family Foundation and their efforts in strengthening the Hispanic community in Nashville. We are excited to be able to fund a program which helps uplift youth in Nashville with a focus on technology and robotics.”
This $10,000 grant is part of the many generous efforts of the Comcast Foundation. The charitable arm of Comcast, the Comcast Foundation supplies grants, scholarships, donation of technology, employee volunteers, and other valuable resources in the U.S. Comcast pledged $50,000 in grants and more than 700 laptops in Tennessee organizations in 2020.
