For the past 5 years we have distributed hundreds of computers to families and students in need. Businesses and others donate computers, and volunteers refurbish them. All data from hard drives is erased and we install Microsoft Windows 10 and Office 2010.
Our hope is to help improve the quality of life for those in need by providing computers and training. Applied Technology Foundation (dba TechCharities) was established in 2013 as a non-profit, community-based organization with 501(c)3 status.
We partner with other charitable agencies to distribute the computers to qualified recipients.
Clients contribute a small administrative fee to help offset the costs of refurbishing the computer. The fee is waived if the client completes a pre-approved basic course of computer skills.
