About the Benefit:
The Forsyth BYOT Benefit has started its second successful year of supporting the children and the BYOT technology initiative in the Forsyth County Schools. In our first year, 2013, we were able to deliver almost $30,000 to the schools and the county has already purchased 80 Kajeet SmartSpots that will allow that many families to have internet in their homes where it was previously missing.

In 2014, we have set our sights on a loftier goal and believe that the generous residents and companies of Forsyth County will again see their way to assist us in this endeavor. We invite you to check out this website, see what we have done, and decide if you’d like to be a part of this very important effort.
