JFS Orlando builds computer lab


JFS Orlando recently received a $30,550 grant from the annual Community Investment Grant Round at Central Florida Foundation. The grant will be used to establish a computer lab to be used by JFS Orlando clients and assist in agency technology upgrades. The computer lab will provide a place for clients to research and apply for job opportunities, write resumes and conduct employment workshops.

“We are undergoing major renovations at JFS Orlando and this new computer lab will play a large role in our ability to better serve our community,” said Executive Director Eric Geboff. “With these funds we can create a working space to assist and educate our clients as they seek employment opportunities. With the new computer lab, JFS Orlando will provide computer related classes for the entire community.”

This grant is a result of the Community Investment grant round, an initiative of the Central Florida Foundation’s effort to educate the next generation about investing in nonprofits. For the fifth year in a row, students in the “Philanthropy, Fundraising, and Social Entrepreneurship” course in the School of Public Administration at the University of Central Florida teamed up with mentors from the Foundation. The students used Nonprofit Search to research nonprofits and presented grant recommendations to the Foundation’s board of directors for approval. This project is funded in part by a grant from the Frances and Joseph Victor Fund at Central Florida Foundation.
