About Easterseals' Partnership with Comcast NBCUniversal
Easterseals has enjoyed the support of Comcast NBCUniversal since 2013 when the Comcast Foundation established The Comcast NBCUniversal Assistive Technology Fund at Easterseals. Since that time, the Foundation has provided $870,000 in financial support to expand successful models of assistive technology at nearly 20 affiliate locations in Comcast Cable markets, as well as at headquarters, to help children and adults with disabilities reach for and realize their potential. Plus, Comcast NBCUniversal has provided $12 million dollars in airtime over the years to heighten awareness of Easterseals among its viewers with PSAs focused on key initiatives including Make the First Five Count, Walk With Me and veteran's services.
Comcast NBCUniversal also makes its Internet Essentials program available for Easterseals friends and families. Families who have children at home that receive a free or reduced price lunch through the National School Lunch Program may qualify for Internet Essentials from Comcast NBCUniversal. The program provides reduced cost internet access for qualifying families. This program was created to help families get affordable Internet at home, so more children have the opportunity to succeed – in school and in life.
