In an ongoing series, the Benton Foundation and the National Digital Inclusion Alliance (NDIA) explore the origins, strategies, challenges and funding mechanisms for successful digital inclusion organizations.

A final article written by Angela Siefer and Matthew Kopel, was published on the Benton website about E2D, also known as Eliminate the Digital Divide — a nonprofit in Charlotte (NC) that began with a focus on closing the homework gap. The mission of E2D is to ensure that all students have affordable access to essential at-home technology and digital literacy training to support academic success and prepare students for college, careers, and beyond. By the end of the 2019-20 school year, E2D’s goal is for 100% of Charlotte Mecklenburg School District families to have a computer and internet access in their homes.
