GRANDVILLE — Trivalent Group, a technology firm based in Grandville, is beginning a philanthropic initiative geared toward helping nonprofits with their technological needs.
CompassionIT, created through internal discussions about philanthropy at the company, will provide $30,000 of services and equipment to a winning nonprofit that will be named by a combination of committee selection and public voting.
Four other finalist nonprofits will receive a deep, detailed “GPS” analysis of their technological needs, and all nominated organizations will receive an initial, free report on the status of their IT needs, the company announced today.
CEO Larry Andrus said the total amount of money given away may increase as organizations partner with Trivalent. If the award increases, the prize money might be spread around among the rest of the finalists, as well as the winner, he said.
Nonprofit nominations are accepted prior to Oct. 31, and submissions are accepted at TGcompassionIT.com.
