How IT and Tech Companies are giving back during the COVID-19 Pandemic


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many businesses, large and small, in many different sectors have all been affected severely. No one is certain about the future but we are all in agreement that more tough times are still ahead. It’s important to remain optimistic that this too shall pass and we need to do our best to help others in need. It should be a top priority, as important as staying safe and healthy.

There are plenty of examples that many tech companies and others have been generous with their products and services. For example, Zoom lifted their 40 minute limit for non-subscribers. Adobe is allowing its educational customers to request access for free home access for students and teachers to its Creative cloud suite of tools. They have also made their web conferencing service, Adobe Connect, free for schools, businesses and government agencies on a 90 day licenses. The following is a list of tech companies that are offering some kind of freebie to the public and businesses. Free resources can be found here

Of note, more and more businesses are donating and offering services to Frontline Healthcare workers. It’s a great show of camaraderie when this type of help is available to both businesses and the general public, who have been impacted heavily by this pandemic.

In the beginning of the COVID-19 stay at home orders, CEO Computers offered to refurbish used computers and laptops to be used by local students. This project was successful due to community outreach; we received many laptops and one company was generous enough to donate 800 iPad Mini’s to be distributed to local students in the community. We are also offering 3 months of free services to any LA based businesses or non-profits who are badly affected by this pandemic until this crisis is over.

We are committed to our community and have started a weekly newsletter titled “Tech Tip Tuesday”.
