Girls, Inc. of Chattanooga was nominated to win Claris Networks’ Cloud Giveaway, which provides up to $200,000 in IT support and services to a local nonprofit for three years. Girls Inc. of Chattanooga needs the help of the community to become one of the four finalists.
According to Bea Lurie, president and CEO, “Girls Inc. of Chattanooga is using technology from the last century that slows down organizational communication, data back-up and disaster recovery.
The deadline for the nomination stage is Friday. Supporters should visit the Girls Inc. of Chattanooga Facebook page at www.facebook.com/girlsincofchatt and share the post about the Cloud Giveaway with their friends. Tweeting about Girls Inc. of Chattanooga with the hashtag #CloudGiveaway2012 is another way to help.
According to the Claris Networks website, "For the second year in a row, Claris Networks is giving away $200,000 in cloud computing services to a worthy non-profit in the Chattanooga area. Unfortunately, too many wonderful non-profit organizations just scrape by with outdated technology, hoping to avoid disaster. We want to help by giving a Chattanooga organization the same IT infrastructure and computer support that large enterprises with deep pockets have."
