David Bohnett Cybercenter
The LGBTQA Center at UVM is home to a David Bohnett Cybercenter. Since the Fall of 2007, our Cybercenter has provided computer stations with internet access and low-cost, subsidized printing options for UVM students.
The Cybercenter is open Monday through Friday, 8:30am to 4:30pm, with evening hours for Tuesday & Thursday, open from 8:30am to 8:00pm.
In 1999, David Bohnett
(founder of GeoCities) created the David Bohnett Foundation
, a grant-making organization that provides funding, state-of-the-art technology, and technical support to innovative organizations and institutions that meet their funding guidelines and share their vision. The Foundation has provided over $100 million in grants to support social activism including LGBT rights, wildlife preservation, and violence reduction.
Since 1998, The David Bohnett Foundation has offered grants to LGBT organizations in order to create Cybercenters. The purpose of these Cybercenters is to:
• Offer educational, research, and recreational opportunities to the local LGBT community via access to the Internet all within an affirming and safe, communal environment.
• Provide a full range of Internet and business software available for business and personal computing.
The first CyberCenter was opened in 1998 at the Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Center. As of Fall 2017, the David Bohnett Foundation had contributed over $3 million to support Cybercenters nationwide. For more information visit the David Bohnett Foundation Website
