DANEnet is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. DANEnet has served Dane County non-profit organizations since 1995 by offering on-site technical support, technical training, and technical planning and consulting services. In addition to technical support DANEnet partners with community agencies to provide technology and other science education to groups that might not have access to such opportunities. DANEnet is committed to helping to close the digital divide in Dane County, we believe that technology, connectivity and the skills to use both are part of a quality of life that all should be able to enjoy.
DANEnet’s mission is to make information technology accessible and affordable through education and services for nonprofit organizations and individuals with barriers.
In 1995 DANEnet was founded by UW-Extension, people from a wide variety of local nonprofits, and a group of enthusiastic volunteers. The following year it became a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with its own board of directors.
