Goliad™ Technology Fund

Giving students, teachers, and educational non-profits a second chance at realizing their goals.

We live in a world where technology is everything; it is in the way we connect with others, facilitates our mobility, supports our businesses, and is even critical in life and death situations such as powering hospital machinery. Having traversed so many areas in ordinary life, so too have opportunities to study and research increased to better the current offerings while keeping in step with the ever-dynamic field. A lot of money is thus continually invested to facilitate this progressive approach.

However, this is not always the case everywhere. This was made much more apparent by the Covid-19 pandemic which has brought to light the glaring disparity between the haves and have-nots. The inequality is something that might have passed before but is currently derailing progress, especially for the less fortunate who have simply become ‘the forgotten’ as the world tries to get back on its feet. This huge economic gap is affecting the livelihoods of most families and the future of students who have the potential to turn things around. With most investors concentrating on reviving their businesses while NGOs are struggling to meet the rising demand in needy cases, donations to help the less fortunate have dwindled down. It is for this reason that we decided to step in and organize this campaign.

Our hope is to be able to raise funds that will help alleviate this situation for the hundreds of thousands of people who have had to rely on financial aid to make it through.

About Goliad

Goliad Technologies is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit charity organization that provides technology solutions and platforms for other nonprofit organizations as well as the public. In particular, we offer a whole spectrum of free software, services, support, and infrastructure to promote causes we believe in including Free Speech, Trans Rights, LGBTQ+ Rights, Religious Rights, Gun Rights, and Civil/Political Rights. Based in Pittsburgh, PA but operating nationwide, we target charities, organizations, schools, groups, and the community at large that align with helping people advance in society. We are a small and lean organization that is nimble and can make changes quickly. We also do independent research in technology.

The Cause

The Goliad™ Technology Fund is committed to raising money for technology grants which will be awarded to students, educational nonprofits, and teachers who are in need of financial aid. Our goal is to provide them with necessities to help advance their professional aspirations such as Wi-Fi access points to students without home internet, laptops for college students, educational aids for teachers, along with the technology services that we will provide directly to them like our internal cloud services and access to IT professionals for consultations.

We kindly request that you support us in this campaign cause which will transform lives and give the beneficiaries a second chance at realizing their goals. All donations made will be tax deductible.

Thank you so much for your contributions.
