Technology Training Foundation of America - Computer Donation Program
has five key components:
TTFA accepts working computers and working computer parts other
related office equipment. It provides an avenue through its 501(c)(3)
for Corporate America to donate its equipment no longer of use
to serve a greater need. Pentium III, 800 Mhz, and higher, go
into TTFA's refurbishment process. All other equipment is recycled
keeping it out of our already over crowded landfills. Parts that
can be reused from older equipment or incomplete systems are pulled.
Scrap and office equipment that does not meet TTFA's placement
criteria, but has value, helps generate revenue for TTFA's parts
The computer equipment that cannot be repaired or upgraded, and
other non-technology donations, are recycled through one of TTFA's
statewide recycling partners. They provide transportation/pick
up service for the large donations.
REPAIR: The donated equipment that meets TTFA's placement
standards is transported to one of its repair sites for refurbishing/upgrading
before being placed into schools and non-profits at no-charge.
If computers do not work, or if they are missing components or
do not have enough memory, they are of little use to schools or
non-profit organizations. TTFA makes sure that all equipment it
places meets the recipient's technology standards and is fully
operational. The donated computers come with a 90-day replacement
The repair facilities offer vocational students exposure to a
wide variety of computer hardware and opportunities to train with
real-life troubleshooting exercises. In California, TTFA has become
partners with statewide computer refurbishment-training
school programs. They include computer repair programs within
the California Youth
Authority, the Consolidated Brig MCAS Miramar in San
Diego, a few high school training programs and and regional vocational
training programs. TTFA has high standards and only places computers
that can and will be used.
BRIDGE THE DIGITAL DIVIDE: Computers donated through TTFA
are helping stretch technology dollars. With ever advancing technology
and decreasing resources, schools and non-profit organizations
will never have enough money to keep up. Retired corporate computers
that are serviced before being donated, assuring they meet minimum
technology standards of the recipient, are providing necessary
tools to prepare students for our technological world at a tremendous
savings to the taxpayer and to the organizations they are helping.
