Give Free Computers For Low Income Families


Have you ever wondered how nonprofit organizations can offer free computers for low income families?  It’s through donations by everyday people that have a working used laptop they are willing to give to help someone out that’s a little less fortunate.  The laptop may end up going to a student, single parent, or just about anyone else in need.  Here’s how you can give free computers for low income families along with some basic reasons you should consider it.

How It Benefits Me To Give:

If you are looking at giving free computers for low income families, you should know that you can use the donation as a tax credit.  Your tax preparer will be able to fill you in on the details, but just like any other charitable donation, you can use it to limit your total liability.  While you could sell your used laptop, you are unlikely to get too much for it.  Some businesses will actually take old, used laptops and PC’s on trade, but offer pennies on the dollar.  Why do this?  You can help out others buy giving free computers for low income families.

National Organizations That Will Take My Used Laptop:

There are tons of places to donate a PC.  To start out, let’s look at some of the larger, nonprofit groups that will help out and offer free computers for low income families.

CRC:  The Computer Recycling Center is one of the many that offers free laptops for low income families.  They have helped many students get a used PC to use for homework.  They will take your used PC and give to someone in need.

C4K:  Computers 4 Kids is specifically designed to offer free units for low income families that have kids.  Students that need a PC for school will find help through this organization, so it’s a good place to consider.

Freecycle:  This is yet another nonprofit organization that helps those in need with free computers for low income families.  They will take your used PC or laptop and give it to someone that could truly use it.

Local Places To Give:

If you really want to give to free computers for low income families, but want to give to someone local, there are plenty of places and methods to use to put the used PC to use.

Schools:  Make a simple phone call and ask if any of the students are in need.  You can bet they will be able to come up with a name or two.  Free computers for low income families in your area will help your community.

Civic Groups:  There are likely tons of nonprofit, civic organizations in your area.  You can bet one of them would take your used laptop donation and give it to someone in need.  They likely know someone that could benefit from free computers for low income families.

Students You Know:  If you are looking for offer free computers for low income families, maybe you can simply give to someone you know.  Perhaps a neighbor or friend could benefit from your used laptop.

I am Zebenay kassa zeleke from ethiopia, Debre Markos Town preparatory scool. I have BA and MA degree in Geography and Environmental Studies received from Addis Ababa University in the year 2001 and 2010 respectively. Although I have these degrees and had taken some introductory courses related to GIS and Remote Sensing, I am not much more expert and professional in GIS and Remote Sensing.This is due to lack of my own computer. this is again due to financial problems, the monthly salaries that paid for me is not even cover my families and my Owen expense. Hence, I ask you and your organization kindly to give me a lap top to advance my profession . I am waiting your kind response.

My asset that I earned from a matched saving program IDA with Opportunity Fund to transition off of disability following my cancer scare was stolen from me. I'm traumatized. I saved two years for the perfect computer with my earnings, but somebody took it in two minutes. Please buy from my web site so I can overcome the loss and remain benign.
