"Without the Ed Tech Foundation our technology center would be years from completion. The volunteers provided the expertise, the manpower, and the supplies to get our center wired and operational within weeks. Ed Tech is a fantastic group of highly dedicated IT professionals who saved us nearly fifteen thousand dollars in completing the tech project. Now, when our new Boys & Girls Club opens our kids will have daily access to a quality tech lab & learning center." - Video Testimonial

"On behalf of the community of St. Joseph School, Gowanda, I would like to express our deep appreciation for all you have done for our school.  At this time, I especially want to thank you for the five new monitors you donated to our computer lab.  They look terrific and have helped to make our computer lab look like a real computer lab.  Tonight we have our first open house for this year.  We are anxious to show off our new look computer lab.

We would still be in the technology stone age without your generous donations of time, talent and materials.  We cannot thank you enough. May God continue to bless your efforts."

~ Patrick J. Brady, Principal, St. Joseph School, Gowanda

"Ed Tech Day continues to give our school the opportunity to provide a better technology program for our students that may have not come together without them. As a principal of a private school, it is often a concern on how to utilize limited resources to offer a strong tech program. Ed Tech Day provides me the assurance that we can offer a quality tech program through the program's dedicated volunteers."

~ Kathy Jami, Principal, Universal School

"Our school is very thankful to the volunteers of Ed tech Day. The 1st year our school opened we had to merge three schools equipment and set up a new network. In the past we have also have had our Smart boards set up, the computer lab rewired and a server installed. Ed Tech Day is a great day to meet people, learn something new, and know that you are helping in the education of a child."

~ Robin Boutet, Notre Dame Academy

"Ed. Tech Day provided our school with a badly needed new server. Ours was not functioning properly and was causing us to have many problems. In addition, the crew brought us 10 refurbished classroom computers. This was a God-send for our school, as I do not know how we would have been able to afford these upgrades."

~ Bonnie Renzi, Principal St. Aloysius Regional School

"With your help we managed not only to meet, but exceed the goals set for the day! The technology program at St. John's will benefit greatly from the efforts each of you provided in establishing a file server, setting up and configuring the lab computer, providing the classroom upgrades, as well as the 'painful' update/maintenance process performed on each computer."

~ Marilynn Camp, St John the Baptist

"Words cannot express the gratitude that St. Leo the Great School has for the work donated by Ed Tech Day over the past two years. As many know, Catholic schools often have to use very creative planning to fund the various work needed in their Tech labs from year to year. From equipment to programming and repair, Ed Tech Day has always been there to donate equipment and work in our lab every summer ensuring that our teachers and children have what they need to integrate technology into the classrooms every day."

~ Carol Kraus, Principal St Leo the Great School

"The assistance provided by the EdTech team members has been proven to be invaluable. From the volunteering of their time to the provision and installation of new hardware and software, the team accomplished their objectives for the day. Our computer network has been upgraded and running smoothly thanks to EdTech Day."

~ John LaMattina, Tech Coordinator, Northern Chautauqua Catholic School

I would like to personally thank the Ed Tech Foundation for its generous donation of 2 refurbished computers for my classroom. As a 4th Grade teacher with a rigorous and challenging NYS curriculum to follow, these new computers have enhanced my students’ learning. Every day, my students actively use them in many ways – from researching various topics to playing Math and Science games for reinforcement of lessons taught in class. The students thoroughly enjoy having them in the classroom, and being able to use them throughout the day. I am truly grateful to the Ed Tech Foundation for this contribution. I feel that the computers will continue to have a wonderfully positive effect in my classroom and with my 4th graders.

~ Ann McGrath, SS. Peter and Paul Catholic School
