The Creating IT Futures Foundation was first established in 1998 as the CompTIA Educational Foundation by CompTIA, the IT Industry Association. Through the Foundationâ€™s centerpiece program, Creating Futures, the Foundation consistently provided training and certification opportunities to people who have historically been under-represented in the information technology workforce, including individuals with disabilities, at-risk youth, women, and military personnel and their spouses.
