The technology world is ever-changing, which means your computer becomes outdated just four months after you buy it, and your iPhone is right behind it. If you’re in a race to keep up with the latest devices, what do you do with your old ones? Local nonprofit organization Charity Device has the answer – donate it.
Charity Device launched in 2015 after recognizing the need to provide people with an efficient way to get rid of their old devices. The organization takes the devices it receives and sells them on third-party eCommerce websites. All the proceeds from the sale of donated devices go to organizations that focus on helping the needy worldwide.
Just how much of an impact does donating one device have? When you donate one device, you give 50 people clean water for a year, feed 83 people, or give a child one year of education.
Here’s how donating to Charity Device works:
- You choose your device to donate and answer a few short questions about it.
- Print out your prepaid shipping label and mail your device to Charity Device.
- Proceeds from your device will be used to help those in need around the world.
The organization is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, which means that you’ll receive a tax receipt after your donation, and you can use this receipt on your tax returns. The best part is that you can claim full fair market value for your donated device.
After receiving your donation, Charity Device will put it through a 40-point inspection to determine its condition. Just remember to wipe your devices before donating them.
