Earlier this summer, the Ideum team delivered a 65” Presenter wall-mounted multitouch display and computer to the New Mexico Center on Law and Poverty (NMCLP) as part of our Technology for our Community Program. The NMCLP has been a voice for low-income New Mexicans since 1996. The nonprofit organization has worked to improve the lives of New Mexicans through education and healthcare while supporting worker’s rights] and the Native American community. They have also pursued legal action to better the lives of underserved and vulnerable communities in New Mexico.

Ideum’s Founder and Creative Director, Jim Spadaccini, has been a long-time supporter of the nonprofit and currently serves as President of the organization's Board of Directors.

On August 5, Ideum also delivered a 65” touch display and computer to La Cueva High School. The Albuquerque school requested the system to provide new opportunities for students to explore cutting-edge technology and expand their awareness of STEAM-related careers.

The touch display will be an important addition to the school’s library and media center. Educators from a wide range of fields, including the Fine Arts and Special Education Departments, will use the system to engage students in new kinds of interactive learning activities and projects. La Cueva has distinguished itself by ranking in the top 100 Best Public High Schools in the U.S in 2018 and offers students a spectrum of clubs and activities and 17 athletic teams.

Ideum is proud to add these organizations to the list of nonprofits we support. Formalized in June 2018, the Technology for our Community Program is designed to support our region by donating multitouch tables and displays to local nonprofits, educational institutions, and government agencies, such as schools, libraries, fire departments, and other municipal groups.

While Ideum donates hardware year-round, we can only do so as displays and touch tables become available. If you would like to submit a request to be considered for a donation, you may complete our online form. Please note that the Program is currently available only to New Mexico-based organizations.

In the past year Ideum has donated multitouch tables and displays to Warehouse 508, Albuquerque Economic Development, Bernalillo High School’s Spartan Techno Gears Club, and the Corrales Fire Department.
