Be a Part of this Exciting Movement

GRC for Intelligent Ecosystems changes the lives of marginalized individuals through our unique and unprecedented educational program in cybersecurity. By successfully completing one of GRCIE’s programs, a student’s earning potential is increased and they are able to pivot into a family-sustaining career.  With this kind of help, we are playing a critical role in transforming these communities. Most importantly, these changes will resonate for generations to come. 

By joining the GRCIE family, donors are supporting the potential of these individuals and communities.  If you would like to help with this important effort, please see below.

Individual and Philanthropic Support

Because GRCIE does not charge its students tuition, we depend on the financial support of individuals and organizations to cover the costs associated with the program. Whether you are an individual wanting to make a difference for our underserved communities or the decision-maker in an organization that funds worthy causes, we would love to hear from you. Your contribution helps provide the necessary equipment and tools for our students to be successful in the program.

Corporate Involvement

Companies having difficulty attracting qualified cybersecurity personnel can benefit by partnering with GRCIE. If your organization is interested, we can work with you to identify your specific needs and then seek students who might be the best candidates to train for the roles you need to fill. 

By sponsoring those students, you can be guaranteed placement within your company upon their graduation. We can even add custom industry-specific modules to our training agenda to ensure your new hires will be ready on day one. To get started exploring the possibilities for your corporation, contact us with an overview of your needs.
