Kramden Institute's Mission

Kramden Institute Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to empowering hardworking, yet economically disadvantaged, students to cross the digital divide. This is done by awarding thousands of PCs to students to be used to advance their academic and personal achievements. Kramden collects donated PCs, laptops, and peripherals; refurbishes the equipment; and awards the computers, thereby extending the useful life of electronics and reducing e-waste.
