In-Kind Sponsor Highlight – Capital One

Capital One

Thanks, Capital One, for donating MacBooks and iPads!

For an IT firm, it’s critically important to have a testbed where you can test out the latest changes before sending them off to your customers.  When IT4Causes wanted to start helping our pilot agencies with solutions that run on their Apple equipment, we knew we needed to get our hands on more Macs and iPads.  So we sent out a call to our Technical Advisory Group to see if we could locate an older MacBook and maybe an iPad to build out our lab.   In a few short days, Melissa Sorbello from Capital One came back with an offer almost too good to be true:  not just a single unit, but 2 MacBook Pros AND 2 iPad2’s!  We quickly arranged pickup and got the equipment humming so we could validate our proposed “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) security policy.  We were also able to arrange for another donation of an additional MacBook to support a new employee at our pilot customer UnBoundRVA!   These generous donations from Capital One saved us thousands of dollars and enabled us to keep moving without missing a beat.  So thanks, Capital One, for once again being such a great supporter of the RVA nonprofit community!
