This lack of access contributes to a growing digital divide where completing schoolwork, or college and job applications becomes increasingly difficult. Yet, in this environment, U.S. companies dispose of millions of functional computers every year, per their upgrade cycle. In a solution that is both sustainable and beneficial, TechFIN diverts some of these machines from the scrap heap to the living room.
TechFIN sources used, but unwanted computers from generous corporate donors.
The working machines are picked up, in bulk, and delivered to our storage facility. There, the machines are cleaned, tested, and loaded with software by our IT staff, then set aside for distribution.
TechFIN partners with non-profit organizations that already work closely with low income families. These nonprofit organizattions then identify and nominate appropriate recipients.
