About CSL

People: Our staff, benefactors, and volunteers and some of their accomplishments.

Board: Information for prospective board members.

Sponsors: Organizations that have provided us with cash, equipment, volunteers, training, manuals, heat, office space, or all of the above.

Motivation: Why we want to provide free services to non-profit organizations using free software.

We started as a group of Saturday volunteers working on developing the Lowell Community Technology Consortium's website in December of 1999. ( http://lctc.org ) The original website was hosted by a commercial provider. We made a big leap when the computer science department at UMass Lowell allocated network bandwidth and office space to allow the server provided by LTC to connect directly to the Internet.

The Community Software Lab become an official distinct project of LTC in July of 2002 with a budget of $8,000.

In July of 2004 LTC spun the CSL off as a separate entity to pursue a compatible but separate mission less focused on media and more focused on improving organizational efficiency.

We became a 501c3 Tax exempt organization in August of 2006
