22 Sep: Best Buy Awards $2M in Grants to Local Teen-Focused Nonprofits

For a half-century, Best Buy has been a catalyst for the rise of technology as a means to improve virtually every aspect of our lives. As society becomes more reliant on technology, it is critical for youth to develop the necessary skills to be prepared for the jobs of the future. Over the next decade, nearly 80 percent of all jobs will require tech skills.

To support these efforts, the Best Buy Foundation recently awarded more than $2 million to 337 local nonprofits across the country through our Community Grants Program.

09 Mar: Best Buy Awards Nearly $2 Million to Teen-Focused Nonprofits

Technology has become ingrained in our society, and it’s not hard to fathom that more than 75 percent of jobs over the next decade will require tech skills. However, many teens do not have adequate tech education to be prepared for jobs of the future.

At Best Buy, this opportunity gap is where we have decided to focus our community giving and signature community programs.

We’re committed to keeping our communities strong. Not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because we rely on our communities to provide a talented workforce.
