Donation to Jared Polis foundation tied to company's education outreach program.

LAND INFO International LLC, a producer of international geospatial mapping data, has made a donation to Technology For All-Colorado (TFAC), an initiative creating educational and economic opportunities for disadvantaged people through access to technology. The organization is part of The Jared Polis Foundation, a non-profit serving Colorado's educational community.

Jared Polis, a successful Internet entrepreneur that founded ProFlowers.com, BlueMountain.com, and other companies, started the Jared Polis Foundation in 2001. The foundation, and its TFAC initiative, works closely with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Denver, YouthBiz, Family Learning Center, I Have a Dream Foundation, Denver Rescue Mission, Rocky Mountain SER, and other groups around the state. The group asks corporations to donate used, working computer equipment. TFAC then erases hard drives, installs new software, and places the computers in community technology centers in low-income neighborhoods. These technology labs use the computers for adult job training, and after-school programs for elementary and middle school students.
