MTTC's unique computer donation program helps companies and individuals use the remaining value in outdated computer equipment. MTTC refurbishes computers and uses them in training programs that teach basic computer literacy to those who may not otherwise have an opportunity to own a personal computer. Because MTTC is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, the donor may qualify for tax benefits for the donated equipment.
Recent national surveys have shown that over 80% of all computers are in storage; most organizations don't know what to do with them. Storage costs money and the computers lose value rapidly. An organization that fails to move its off-line machines is losing money.
Donating computers to MTTC is a way for organizations to effectively get rid of unused equipment and to better the community at-large while dealing with only one donation source. You can be assured that we will securely remove your licensed software and any data remaining on donated systems.
Any computers or components that we accept and cannot be refurbished will be responsibly recycled through an environmentally responsible recycling facility.
Section 170 of the Federal Income Tax Code outlines tax benefits that may result from these donations.
