The CEA Foundation's mission is seniors and people with disabilities with technology to enhance their lives. The programs listed on this site highlight some of the examples of areas where we have been able to assist innovative nonprofits to make a difference.
The CEA Foundation is committed to supporting innovative programs that utilize consumer electronics to improve the lives of seniors. In 2010 there were more than 40 million people age 65 or older who were living in the United States, and this number is expected to grow to more than 88 million – representing 20 percent of the population – by 2050. By improving the quality of life of seniors through greater independence and social interaction, we will have a positive impact on the lives of many while also reducing the costs of care.
For more information regarding this program see the grants portion of our site.
People with Disabilities
The CEA Foundation recognizes the incredible impact that consumer electronics have on the independence of people with disabilities. We are committed to supporting programs that continue to innovate on accessibility and create awareness about features that meet the needs of these communities. In addition to supporting nonprofits we have hosted roundtable discussion to create understanding between industry and disability organizations.
