The CTA Foundation's goal is to improve the lives of seniors and people with disabilities through the use of technology to enable healthy and more independent living

The CTA Foundation accomplishes its goals through:
- supporting innovative nonprofit organizations
- building partnerships with industry, advocates and other stakeholders
- highlighting the opportunity for technology to make a difference

The CTA Foundation is able to build on our connections to innovators and affiliation with the Consumer Technology Association to accomplish our mission

All grant programs are required to provide clear measurable metrics that they must report on to show their success and their impact towards our mission. The Organization and staff also create SMART goals to track progress.

In a fairly short period of time since launching the CTA Foundation, we have supported a number of innovative nonprofit organizations that support our mission,. This includes programs that are training people on the use of consumer electronics for people with disabilities and older adults, to finding ways to identify technology to match consumer needs, to reconnecting homebound seniors with their communities.
