Teaming for Technology

Announcement 12/14/2017: 

For more than 20 years, T4T has worked to bridge the digital divide for our community’s most vulnerable children and families by refurbishing more than 20,000 donated computers and putting them into the hands of North Carolina schools and non-profit organizations at a greatly reduced cost.

Our leadership has spent the last few months evaluating our efforts and impact as they relate to United Way’s organizational priorities. In an effort to be more focused on our mission, remove duplication of services, and be more effectual stewards of our donors’ resources by prioritizing our work to maximize the impact of our investments in our community, we have decided to discontinue the Teaming for Technology program starting in January 2018.

Important Dates:

  • The last day we will be accepting technology donations will be Friday, December 22, 2017
  • Our final day for order fulfillment will be no later than February 15, 2018

As we mentioned, one of the reasons for this discontinuation is due to other organizations in our community offering similar services. We will be referring any future technology requests to United Way’s 2-1-1 referral service in order to connect organizations and individuals with the most appropriate resource to meet their needs.

Once again, we thank you for all of your support and time over the years. We couldn’t have touched so many lives without you.


Teaming For Technology (T4T) is a program of United Way of the Greater Triangle that refurbishes used computer equipment to like-new condition and makes it available to Triangle area schools, students, and 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations at greatly reduced prices.

T4T will gladly accept your quality used hardware that we can refurbish and distribute to our network.  If you or your company has hardware to donate or even recycle, please click here.

Questions and Answers About Teaming for Technology

Where is T4T located?

We’re back in the United Way of the Greater Triangle main office at:

2400 Perimeter Park Drive, Suite 150
Morrisville, NC  27560


How can I volunteer with T4T?

Teaming for Technology offers open volunteer windows each Friday from 1PM – 4PM.  Alternatively, if you’d like to volunteer another time or with a group, please contact Carlos Guzman at 919-463-5031 to setup the appointment, and get a briefing of what you may be doing during your volunteer experience.

Is my organization eligible to receive a computer from T4T?

We’re able to offer our computers at an extremely low price because of the generosity of Microsoft with their Citizenship license program.  Because of these low prices, we’re required to only sell this particular hardware to schools and registered nonprofits.  However, we do sell Linux-based machines to the general public.

What types of hardware do you accept?

Thank you for your interest in donating your computer equipment.  United Way’s Teaming for Technology can almost always use your equipment, even if it has little or no value to you!  What we can’t use, we responsibly recycle through an R2 certified e-cycler.  We pride ourselves in our participation in responsible e-cycling, and know that our donors appreciate this as well.
