California State PTA is fortunate to have the support of so many dynamic, committed partners who are aligned with our mission to support children and families, and help us to perform important work on their behalf.
The California Emerging Technology Fund is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing low-cost internet and computer offers to those who need them. They work with a wide range of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and device providers to feature affordable solutions. California State PTA and CETF are working together to bridge the digital divide, and help lower-income families access the technology that can help their children succeed in school and in life.
