In response to the COVID-19 crisis Danenet is suspending or restricting many of our programs and services. See our full COVID-19 statement for more details. We are exploring new ways to continue our education and digital divide work within current limitations and look forward to restoring full services as soon as possible.
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 education to groups that might not have access to such opportunities. DANEnet is committed to digital equity. 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 project Everyone On Madison provides digital literacy, low-cost devices and assistance enrolling in low-cost internet service.
Our vision is to make Dane County the most connected place for everyone.
