TechSoup says it has launched a refurbished computer initiative that turns a corporation’s unwanted IT equipment into effective corporate Green Philanthropy. The IT asset management program accepts all unwanted IT equipment (working or not), transfers responsibility and liability, meets regulatory requirements, and provides complete program management. Donated equipment that still has a useful life is refurbished and made available to nonprofit organizations and low-income families.
TechSoup has partnered with Redemtech to create the program. Jim Lynch, RCI Program Director, says that the program is ready for large scale operation: “Nonprofits around the country badly need good low-cost computers. Our only challenge now is supply. TechSoup is currently identifying large companies and other organizations able to donate their used, commercial-grade personal computers and other office equipment, and participate in the RCI program as recognized partners.”
