The LGBT Resource Center at the University of Utah is pleased to announce the opening of the David Bohnett CyberCenter.
The CyberCenter includes 5 modern, internet ready, Apple iMac Intel Core i5 computers and a monochrome printer. These computers were made possible by a generous "refresh" grant from the David Bohnett Foundation. These computers, housed in the safety of the LGBT Resource Center, provide our local LGBTQIA* community computer, internet, and printing access that they might not otherwise have.
“The David Bohnett CyberCenters are places where gay, lesbian, bi-sexual and transgender people can comfortably get on a computer, access services and network with each other in a nurturing and supportive atmosphere,” Paul Moore, program officer of the David Bohnett Foundation said.
David Bohnett Foundation
Since 1999, the David Bohnett Foundation (www.bohnettfoundation.org) has been committed to improving society through social activism, and has provided funding, state-of-the-art technology and technical support to innovative organizations and institutions. Grants totaling over $50m to date have been given in several primary funding areas: The Fund for Los Angeles, supporting a broad spectrum of arts, educational and civic programs; LGBT-related causes; voting rights and registration initiatives; supporting research and public policies to reduce the toll of firearm violence; and animal research and rights.
David Bohnett serves as Chair of the David Bohnett Foundation; the head of the private equity firm Baroda Ventures and was the founder of GeoCities.com, an Internet based media and e-commerce company in 1994. GeoCities was acquired by Yahoo! in 1999. His goals are improving lives, empowering individuals and building viable communities by connecting like-minded people in meaningful ways. Also central to Bohnett’s vision is his call to action to aspiring philanthropists to begin their giving by getting personally involved with causes with which they identify so that they can experience service first-hand.
