Give Tech

Donate new and used technology equipment

Stop by our office at 5010 NC Hwy 55 in Durham to donate computer equipment. We are only a short drive from Research Triangle Park, Chapel Hill, Raleigh, Wake Forest, Apex, Cary, Morrisville, Fuquay-Varina, Holly Springs, Angier, Willow Springs, Garner, Smithfield and Carrboro. Because we are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, your equipment donations are tax-deductible, subject to IRS regulations.

Individual Donations

Business Donations

If your business or organization would like to make an equipment donation, please contact us. For large donations of used/surplus computer equipment, Kramden has a loading dock to accommodate pallets and bulk equipment. For donations of approximately 20 computers or more, we will happily come get them locally with our van. Please contact us to discuss options for smaller donations.
