30 Apr: Despite COVID-19, Best Buy’s Commitment To Teens And Tech Remains Strong

Best Buy is committed to helping teens from disinvested communities build brighter futures, and that has only become more important during the COVID-19 pandemic.

That’s why we’re continuing to ensure teens and the organizations that serve them have access to the technology, training and mentorship they need to learn and grow. We’re doing that by donating millions of dollars in funding for local nonprofits and providing teens with the tech they need to stay connected during this time.

“Now, more than ever, we’re seeing technology is essential for helping young people learn and stay connected,” said Andrea Wood, Best Buy’s head of social impact.


13 May: Best Buy Now Accepting Community Grant Applications

Best Buy has a long history of partnering with nonprofit organizations in communities across the country through our Community Grants program. This year, we are looking to award more than $2 million to eligible organizations.

We will prioritize proposals that include hands-on learning opportunities for young people and that creatively engage youth in experimenting and interacting with technology.

Our involvement doesn’t stop with financial support, though. Many of our employees give back to their communities by volunteering with the organizations that receive support through Community Grants.

18 Sep: Best Buy Awards $2 Million to Local Tech-Ed Nonprofits

As students everywhere are getting back to school, we know that not all teens are receiving the tech education they will need to be successful in future careers.

To address this gap, the Best Buy Foundation, through our annual Community Grants Program, awarded more than $2 million to 414 nonprofit organizations across the country. The nonprofits we support provide teens from underserved communities opportunities to develop tech skills that will help them prepare for post-secondary education and careers.

Our field employees across the country were highly engaged in the grantmaking process, providing insights on the needs of their communities and making funding decisions.
