Madison, Wisc. (September 6, 2016) – As part of its ongoing effort to create more sustainable communities, Old National Bank is donating 150 computers to the Digital Divide Project. The equipment donation is part of Old National’s partnership with AnchorBank. All AnchorBank branches will be converted to Old National banking centers this weekend.
"Helping sustain our communities through equipment donations is core to our values at Old National Bank," said Dan Nord, IT asset manager for Old National. "Since 2013, we have partnered with more than 44 agencies throughout our footprint resulting in more than 3,400 electronic equipment units being donated."
Former AnchorBank (now Old National) associates will be provided new computers as part of the conversion to Old National Bank systems, creating an opportunity to donate computer equipment to the Digital Divide Project, a pilot started by the City of Madison to improve access to computers and network/internet services to all citizens, with special attention to low-income families.
"The Digital Divide Project and its three-pronged approach of providing educational services, equipment access and Internet access is something we are extremely proud and excited to support," said Len Devaisher, Old National’s Wisconsin Region CEO. "As a community bank, we recognize the value of strengthening the communities we serve."
The Digital Divide Project is a collaborative effort among City of Madison agencies, the Common Council, private sector and non-profit entities, particularly DANEnet.
