The On It Foundation
The Founder’s personal history is behind the creation of The On It Foundation. Due to personal hardships, the Founder was unable to purchase a computer for her daughter who was struggling in her computer class. After conducting an extensive search for organizations and businesses that might relinquish donated or surplus computers to low-income families, she found none that were willing to donate directly to individuals.
Therefore, in November 1999, The On It Foundation was founded by Ms. Calvetta Phair. The On It Foundation is a public 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations with the mission to enhance and expand technology access to economically and socially disadvantaged families with school-age children in grades K-12.
