About Us

Making Computer Ownership Possible for Everyone

Our Mission

The mission of Digitunity is to make owning a computer possible for everyone.

Intended Impact

A robust and sustainable supply of free or affordable devices will be made available through accessible, resilient, community-level distribution systems, to ensure that anyone who needs a computer has one.

The Problem

Owning a computer is critically important to being able to participate in an increasingly digital world. There are 36 million people in the United States that do not have a computer at home. We acknowledge that historical and institutional barriers have led to this persistent problem.

Theory of Change

To solve this problem, Digitunity believes a holistic, community-driven approach must be taken to develop four key aspects of device ownership:
  1. A robust and sustainable supply of free and low cost, large-screen computers
  2. Computers appropriately prepared for the intended uses of recipients
  3. A trusted and vetted deployment network
  4. Intentional focus on the long term health and resilience of the device ecosystem

Our Core Values

These organizational values are at the core of our work, shaping how we make decisions, and guiding how we engage and interact with partners, donors, peer organizations, and each other. We are working to solve a challenging problem, rooted in complex, interwoven causes. We acknowledge that we are certainly not alone in doing so. 

We use our talent, experience, passion, and resources to join organizations, large and small, local and national, in advancing digital equity. We go where the energy to make meaningful change is. We seize opportunities with partners that embrace our values. We center those impacted by the digital divide. We are here to make the world better.

Honesty and Integrity
We take responsibility to ensure our actions match our words. We prioritize open, transparent communication in all interactions. We are committed to continuously learning about the historical and current structures that cause inequity.

Courage, Curiosity, and Humility
In service to our mission, we are willing to take risks. We are courageous, knowing that we will have both successes and missteps along the way. We ask questions. We learn from others and are humble enough to recognize that we don’t have all the answers. We seek novel solutions, even when they are not apparent or easy. We embrace the challenge of this work. 

As a human-centered organization, Digitunity believes in the innate value of each person. This is reflected in our organizational culture and guides our activities with partners and the communities we serve. We have fun. We respect each other and bring our best selves to this work. 

Thoughtful Urgency
We recognize the human toll of the digital divide and the urgency needed to address it, while simultaneously affirming that long-term, comprehensive solutions are the goal. Acknowledging and working against the interconnected systems of power that created and maintain this divide is complex. The work we do must be predicated upon grappling with history in an effort to create a better future.

Interdependency and Collaboration
We recognize that advancing digital equity cannot be done in isolation. Solving this issue requires each of us to leverage and share our unique perspectives, expertise, and insights. The success of this work requires us to rely on each other, both institutionally and individually. We honor that this takes time, and requires trust building and shared risk, in service to the mission.
