Donate a working computer laptops and desktops–as well as tablets

The COVID-19 pandemic is first and foremost a health crisis. Many countries have decided to close schools, colleges and universities (reducing contact and saving lives). Teaching is moving online, on a massive scale. Student assessments are also moving online, with a lot of trial and error and uncertainty for everyone. Importantly, these interruptions will not just be a short-term issue, but can also have long-term consequence.

With your donation, you are helping teachers and students continue with education.

We gladly accept donations of  computers–both laptops and desktops–as well as tablets to help strengthen family engagement in the homes of low-income students and enable teachers to extend learning beyond the classroom walls.

  • What kind of laptops will you accept?
    We will happily accept any  laptops, preferably with the power cord.
  • What kind of desktops will you accept?
    We will happily accept any desktop computers and monitors you can contribute.
  • How should I transport the laptops or other tech donations to Mark 5?
    To discuss specific logistics, or if you have any questions related to your donation, please contact Mark5 at
  • Would it also be helpful to receive donations of extra laptop power cords?
    Yes, we would love extra laptop power cords because we sometimes receive laptop donations without power cords.
  • Do you accept donations of any other types of technology hardware?
    We welcome the opportunity to discuss other possible donations, such as iPads, other tablets, USB flash drives, and surge protectors for families. Please contact Mark 5 at to discuss your donation.

Being back with Mark 5 just gives me peace of mind knowing that my technology is functioning seamlessly behind the scenes without it interfering with and disrupting our day-to-day operations.


Very late in the day, I received a request from our director to obtain a quote for software and laptops. We needed them by noon the next day. But Mark 5 was able to get those to us first thing in the morning.
