Submission + - 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.
