How can your surplus IT equipment help change the world?
The remaining value of your outdated IT equipment can make a tremendous difference, now and for future generations, to preserve the environment, further education, and provide opportunities for under-served communities.
We’re the only R2:2013-certified IT asset disposition organization in the Pacific NW that actively purchases equipment at aggressive prices. Now we’re directing our remarketing expertise and refurbishment experience towards making a difference.
Some recycling organizations claim that they donate a portion of their profit or some of the actual hardware to charitable causes. However, you are rarely informed how much of your contribution may actually reach those in need, and few or no options of which missions the donation might support. Most of the value of your contribution may end up going to overhead and to pay employees to refurbish systems that still are sold at a profit to eligible entities and individuals.
Now, you can actually see how much and choose where your valuable contribution goes, and be assured that it goes directly to organizations that are making a difference.
The makeITcount program also applies to any equipment on consignment with us!
You can choose one or more of the following organizations to benefit from the valuation on your behalf, or specify your own.
