The Vonage Foundation

The Vonage Foundation is focused on connecting the world through the power of communications, and closing the digital divide.


We are dedicated to the advancement of global connectivity that oftentimes is elusive for those that live, learn and work in underserved or rural communities. 


We work to bridge the digital divide by using technology to unlock innovation and drive creative minds with grants for curriculum, research, technical advancements, knowledge sharing and financial support. 


We aim to make the world we live in a vibrant interconnected community by ensuring a digital-first future is possible today.

Vonage is working to bridge the digital divide by using technology to unlock creative minds and open doors to pathways into a STEM career.

The Vonage Foundation will support Girls Who Code through sponsorship of its Summer Immersion Program 2023, which is focused on building tomorrow's diverse tech workforce through education. The two-week program provides free, virtual opportunities for students in 9th through 12th grade and is a vital part of Girls Who Code's continuous efforts to make coding education accessible and flexible for students of all backgrounds, including those from historically underrepresented groups in Black, Latinx, and low-income communities. The program provides opportunities for young people to expand their technical knowledge and learn more about the computer science field through curriculum tracks that include Game Design, Web Development and Data Science.

"We're grateful for the support from our partners, like Vonage, as we continue to expand our reach. Our curriculum must reflect the immense possibilities that exist within a tech career, so students know that there is room for their passions in tech and that they have the resources to discover new ones."

"On top of eight surgeries, my son had to have two blood transfusions. He was scared to death of the needles and everything that went with it. The second time the doctors did the transfusion, a hospital staff member brought the VR headset and he didn’t cry. He went through it really well."
