+ - Ask Slashdot: How to donate semi-old computers to worthwhile charities? 1

yanom writes "My school gave me several circa-2006 computers with no operating system. I fixed them up, and now they run Lubuntu fairly well, making them great internet/LibreOffice/general Linux workstations. I've been wanting to donate them to local nonprofits where they'll go to good use — for example, I've already given several to a local church for them to use in their afterschool care/tutoring program. However, I'm having trouble finding other places where these machines could go to good use. How should I best conduct this search? How can I find nonprofits that could benefit from these workstations?"

  • Head down to your local Chamber of Commerce, they should have a listing of all registered not-for-profits in your area.

    Other than that, you could always put out an ad on your local Craigslist page. Just watch out for scammers.

Parts that positively cannot be assembled in improper order will be.
