In an effort to maximize Rossway Swan’s charitable impact and to deepen their bond with the community, the Firm’s partners created the Rossway Swan Foundation devoted solely to giving grants to fund selected technological needs of local non-profit organizations. Funded with contributions from the Firm’s profits, the Foundation shares in the Firm’s success, so as to benefit the interests of the local community. Managed by partner Tom Tierney, the Foundation annually solicits applications for assistance in the technological development of Indian River County charitable organizations.
Over fifty Indian River County non-profits submitted an application for a grant and following a process of reviews, sixteen applications were accepted for 2013.
Tom Tierney comments that “We are thrilled with the number of applications the Foundation received this year. The selection process becomes more difficult as the community’s needs increase. The Foundation’s focus on providing improved technological resources to the areas non-profits is just one means in which Rossway Swan is committed to the betterment of the community. It is our mission to bridge needs with resources throughout Indian River County.”
The Foundation will fill the non-profit requests that include the needs for computers, associated hardware, laptops, projectors, scanners, printers and iPads, software, internet service subscriptions and technology grants. The Firm’s technology consultant, Eric Price of Technology Partners Consulting, Inc., collaborates with the Foundation offering set-up, installation, and technological expertise.
