  • What about FL?  I'm a 55 y.o. disabled grandmother raising a mentally handicapped 13 y.o. little girl I've had since she was 3.  She learns so much using electronic games and does well on the computer at school (what little access she has to it).  Does anyone have info on how I can get her a laptop to help her reach her full potential?

  • InterConnection receives high end computer equipment that we professionally refurbish and sell at our retail store. All proceeds from the sales help to support our computer skills training and donation program.

  • Gentlemen,

    I am a volunteer Chief Coordinator for the Catarman Public Library Project, but have not yet registered myself or organization with the irs or IMLS as we are short on capital and still trying to raise the sum from our own resources. Meanwhile, we can use Refurbished Computers for this Project and be able to share it with a Third world country's Public Library project. As a grandfather, I have a number of grandchildren (3) whom I'dlike ot help, but mostly, this will be used for the purpose of the Public Library program.

    I am not gainfully employed at t his time, a Senior Citizen (71) and only rely on my SSI income.  Do you think I can avail myself of a Free Comuter/s? How do I qualify.

  • Jaime, 

      The software and hardware available through TechSoup are to be distributed only to 501(c)(3) organizations and Public Libraries for their own use and cannot be transferred, sold or given away to other organizations or individuals. If the Catarman Public Library Project is a 501(c)(3) organization, they could certainly register and request products through TechSoup however it is important to read the rules and restrictions on product use: http://www.techsoup.org/stock/restrictions.asp#rci. It is also important to remember that there are processing, or Admin Fees, for all products available.

    If you are interested in looking for computers for your own, personal use, I recommend checking the Directory to find refurbishers that are participating in the Registered Refurbisher Program: https://www.msregrefurb.com/RRPSite/OnlineDirectory.aspx

    I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
