Donation Requirements

Our Non-Profit Locator enables you to identify local pre-screened organizations in need of technology donations. Each organization presents their individual needs including the minimum generational requirements and operational status of donations they will accept. Needs vary tremendously among organizations so you may need to explore several in your area to find the one where your donation matches a stated need.

Generally speaking, basic PC donation requirements are listed below. For Macintosh donations, click the "Mac Requirements" link on the right.

  • Pentium III & Higher CPUs (486 and Pentium I and II no longer accepted). Alternative CPUs accepted if Pentium III equivalent or better.
  • If your computer donation includes a complete system (Hard Drive, Monitor, Keyboard, & Mouse), use the "PC Desktop" or "Mac Desktop" category on the donation screens that follow. If not, please use the "Partial CPU" checkbox.
  • If possible, please include Software License Agreements for installed computer software.
  • Hardware needing repair is considered on a case-by-case basis where National Cristina Foundation partner organizations have repair capabilities.
