BLOG: Community Connect Program Benefits the Groundwater Foundation

The Groundwater Foundation has always been proud to be born and raised in our hometown of Lincoln, Nebraska. The community has always been a great place for the Groundwater Foundation to call home.

Now, thanks to the generosity and partnership between ALLO Communications and the City of Lincoln through the Community Connect Program, the Groundwater Foundation joins 76 other Lincoln-based nonprofit organizations that will receive free one gigabit broadband internet service for 10 years. The Community Connect Program was a key component of the City's broadband franchise agreement with ALLO, a Nebraska-based telecommunications company.

"ALLO and Nelnet are local companies that are focused on serving our communities through our work and giving back," said Brad Moline, President of ALLO. "The purpose of the Community Connect Program is to help our communities' nonprofits do what they do best - fulfill their mission of serving and supporting our neighbors in need. This will be accomplished in part by taking care of a significant ongoing expense for these nonprofits and connecting them and the families they touch through world-class broadband. Connecting more organizations and people to our network helps us transform our community and close the digital divide that affects too many."

ALLO President Brad Moline speaks to nonprofit representatives at a reception announcing the partnership on January 28, 2020.
We are thrilled to be a recipient of this generosity, and to live in a community that's willing to invest in nonprofits that help make Lincoln and the world better.
