Where to Donate Computers

Giving a computer to a good cause is a triple-play. The environment benefits from getting the extra use from the machine, somebody who couldn't otherwise afford it gets a computer, and you get a tax break. Perhaps you know a local organization or charity where you can take your old computer (I give mine to SeniorNet). Otherwise, there are a number of organizations that will help you get your computer to some deserving recipient. Some of these are given below (in no particular order).

Nonprofit Recycling & Reuse Network - A worldwide network of non-profit recyclers, donors, volunteers, and other interested parties. Has a collection of links and organizations seeking computers.

World Computer Exchange - International educational nonprofit focused on helping the world's poorest youth. Provides computers to underdeveloped countries. There are a number of drop-off centers or you can ship your computer to them.

The Computers for Schools Program - Refurbishes donated equipment and sends to schools. Has collection sites around the country.

TechSoup - Has a comprehensive body of information on computer recycling and reuse. Resources for those who would like to donate hardware, those who would like to acquire recycled hardware, and refurbishers.

National Cristina Foundation - Provides computers for people with disabilities, students at risk and economically disadvantaged persons.
