Question by Aisha P: wherever can i get totally free new computer systems for a nonprofit organization?
I work for a nonprofit youth middle and we deperately want computer systems. My boss would love them to be new pcs with flat panel monitors but I’m not positive how lucky we’ll be to get that. We just do not will need any longer half working donations.

It would be also hard most likely. I would write grants.

One way is from the federal gov., but they generally donate older models. So I wouldn’t look for flat screens etc. For info:

I also work for a non-profit so I am all too familiar with your problem. There are two ways to get what you want. First, I’m sure you already have a donor list for your organization. Contact the businesses on it and ask them if they have any they are getting rid of. Businesses upgrade so often now, because technology moves so fast that they are constantly upgrading. The second way is to write letters to the big chains. Comp USA, Best Buy, companies like this. If you are a 501(c)(3) organization make sure you point out that the donation is tax decuctable. I have gotten computers both of these ways, most recently I got an almost brand new Dell laptop. Be persistent. Good Luck.

The first lionk is a group based in the Portland, OR area. the other two are links of additional resources for non-profits, with lots of contacts and good information.

Good luck, and keep up the good work!
