A Duluth technology company is offering a big gift to one Northland non-profit.

It will be coming from IT services company Compudyne that is celebrating its 25th anniversary.

The company asked their customers which non-profit should get $10,000. Compudyne narrowed down responses to four finalists and now people can vote online for the winner.

"We're a company built on relationships and local businesses and the support of local businesses," Compudyne President John Marinac said.

The four finalists are in Duluth and on the Iron Range.

Beyond the Yellow Ribbon and Pregnancy Lifecare Center are finalists in Hibbing. In Duluth, it's the Damiano Center and First Witness.

Eyewitness News caught up with the Duluth finalists Wednesday.

"We plan to use the money to support our family services after a child reports abuse," First Witness Executive Director Beth Olson said. "It may be the end of abuse, but it's the beginning of a long journey of finding healing and finding some justice."

"Last year, we served over 120,000 meals here," Damiano Center Executive Director Dave Benson said. "So, there's always a place for funds like this."

Voting ends on January 31. The winner will be announced in February.
