Comcast To Invest $280,000 In Grants And In-Kind Support In Denver, Aurora, And Commerce City To Enhance Digital Learning; Company Also Extends Its National Broadband Adoption Program For Low-Income Families

Comcast announced today it is providing $280,000 in grants and in-kind support to non-profit community organizations in Denver, Aurora, and Commerce City to create “Internet Essentials Learning Zones” within these communities.

Honoring the efforts of its community partners, Comcast has established a Gold Medal Recognition Program in which it is making more than $1 million in grants to dozens of non-profit partners in communities across the country that have led the way in connecting families to home broadband through Internet Essentials. Partners in three Colorado communities are among those to receive support, totaling $280,000 in grants and in-kind contributions:
  • Denver - Mile High United Way
  • Aurora - Aurora Public Library and KidsTek
  • Commerce City - Boys & Girls Clubs and KidsTek

Also, Internet Essentials-eligible families in Denver, Aurora, and Commerce City who are not currently customers can receive six months of complimentary Internet service if they apply and are approved for the program by March 18th, 2014. The families simply need to call 1-855-846-8376 or visit For Spanish, they may call 1-855-765-6995 or visit

The grants in Colorado will enable these communities to create a continuum of connectivity— or “ Internet Essentials Learning Zones” — that begin in the classroom with wired schools, follow the students to wired libraries, wired computer centers, and wired after-school programs, and end in wired homes when the day is done.

Additionally, Comcast also announced it has extended Internet Essentials indefinitely – beyond its initial three-year commitment. In just two and a half years, the initiative has connected more than 1.2 million low-income Americans, or 300,000 families, to the power of broadband Internet. This includes more than 14,000 families across Colorado.

“Comcast’s generous support will provide critical access to technology and training to the community, a key component to advancing digital literacy skills of the Metro Denver workforce,” said Christine Benero, President and CEO of Mile High United Way. “The computer center will be equipped with state-of-the -art technology available for nonprofits, community partners, and members of the community to use free of charge. We are honored to partner with Comcast to create opportunities to increase broadband adoption and create positive community impact.”
