Donate Computers to T4T

Thanks for considering Teaming for Technology when you want to donate computers to help bridge the digital divide.  We’re anxious to meet you, refurbish your computers, and put them back into the hands of someone without technology.  Our network of schools and nonprofits extends across the state of North Carolina, from the Outer Banks to Cherokee county.  We’ve distributed over 25,000 refurbished computers to deserving schools and nonprofits in North Carolina.  Your computers could be next if you choose to donate instead!

If you have any questions, would like to make a large computer donation (40 or more systems) or need further information about our program and process, please call (919)-463-5018, and we’ll be happy to give you any information you may need.

Please read below, and follow these easy 3 steps for a successful donation.  While we love to accept almost anything, there are a few things we can’t accept, and a few tasks that make it much easier and safer to donate computers to Teaming for Technology.  Take a look, and let us know if you have any questions or need help determining if you can donate your computers to our program.

 

1. Check if we accept your item, and read these donation guidelines

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.

Here is a quick list of what we love to accept and can most use in our refurbishing program:

  • Desktop computers – Pentium 4 or higher processor
  • Laptop computers – any age
  • Laptop Bags/cases – good condition
  • Hard Drives – any type or size
  • Tablets – any device, any age
  • LCD (flatscreen) monitors/televisions – any size
  • Peripherals (i.e. mice, keyboards, hard drives, ram, USB flash drives, etc.)
  • Any Apple® products
  • Cellphones (working or not)
  • Printers with new ink/toner cartridges only.
  • We do accept some software (please call first)

 

Here is list of what we cannot accept under any circumstances:

  • CRT (Older Television Style) monitors
  • Tube style televisions of any size
  • Household appliances
  • Miscellaneous boxes of junk/trash

 

To help your community technology program run efficiently, please adhere to the following donation guidelines:

  • OPERATING HOURS: Mon – Fri 9:30am – 4:00pm. Please don’t leave equipment during off hours. Also, it is illegal to dump junk electronics at our door when no one is around.
  • NO PACKAGING: It takes time for us to break down boxes and throw out styrofoam. Please take all items out of their boxes and please leave only the equipment.
  • SUGGESTED DONATION: We appreciate a small $ donation per computer system. From the time we receive a computer to the time it leaves our hands to go to a nonprofit, school or family, we spend approximately $80 on it in time, upgrades, repairs, software, delivery costs, and storage costs.
  • WE CANNOT ACCEPT CRT MONITORS: We cannot accept CRT (older TV style) monitors or CRT televisions under any circumstances, and we are charged a hefty fee by our recycler to dispose of them.  If you bring these to donate, we’ll kindly refuse delivery, and request you take this to your local county disposal site.
  • DON’T FORGET THE POWER CORD: Power cords are not required with your donation, but they are a huge help! Please remember to bring power cords and all appropriate cords and cables with your donation.
  • WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO SELL EQUIPMENT WE CAN NOT PLACE: Occasionally we receive items that the agencies we work with have no use for. Usually it is because the items are too specialized. We will make a reasonable effort to place all items we receive with a family, nonprofit or school, but in the event that we can not place them, we reserve the right to sell them, from which 100% of the proceeds go to support the T4T program.

2. Deliver or ship your equipment to us.
