Free Asset Pickup

We offer free pickups for technology donations that qualify: typically a minimum of 20 desktops or laptops, based in North Carolina (we will travel out of state, depending on the amount/quality of material). Our staff will coordinate pick-up time(s) and location(s) to physically remove the equipment and provide an Equipment Donation Receipt to transfer ownership of the equipment and all data liability to Kramden Institute. Once the assets have been loaded, they are then taken directly to our secure warehouse.

Free Data Sanitization

Kramden is committed to data sanitization and destruction of your confidential information. We physically remove every hard drive from equipment that enters our warehouse, securing the drives in our employee-access only Data Sanitization Area, which is continuously monitoring by a closed circuit television system and alarm system. If a hard drive fails the data removal step, it goes into a locked storage container and delivered to our e-waste recycler where it will be physically shredded. Certificates of Destruction are given upon request.

Technical details of our data destruction procedure can be found here.

Tax Deductible Contribution

Kramden is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Donating entities are eligible to receive a tax deduction for property donated under applicable rules and regulations of the IRS. The charitable deduction for contributions of technology equals the fair market value (retail used value in the current market place) of the donated property.
