Technology Donation Program
About the Program:
Central Connecticut State University maintains a ”University Technology Donation Program” making available computer technology equipment to schools and non-profit community service organizations.
Equipment made available as part of this program has been designated as eligible for donation under The Connecticut State University System “Procedures for Equipment Inventory and Disposition of Surplus Equipment.” While the equipment no longer meets the needs of the University, it can be valuable in assisting our community organizations in meeting their missions.
Who is eligible?
The University accepts requests for donation from any public or private non-profit school, community service group or non-profit organizations covered by IRC Section 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Service. In support of our educational and community service missions, priority for the award of computer equipment donations will occur in the following order:
- Municipal, regional or state funded school systems
- Private non-profit schools
- Non-profit community service organizations
Special consideration will be given to those above organizations operating in the metropolitan area served by the University and the State of Connecticut.
For consideration, please submit a proposal on your organization’s letterhead. Your proposal should describe your organization and the needs of the community you are serving. Please include a description detailing how the donated computer equipment will allow your organization to better serve the needs of your target community.
Proposals should be forwarded to the following address:

When is equipment donated?
The University actively updates the computer systems used by our faculty and staff. Whenever possible, the University strives to re-deploy computer equipment on-campus to serve the academic and administrative needs of the University community. Once computer equipment is designated for donation, the University will make an award determination based upon a review of all pending donation requests on-file.
The University reserves to the right to limit the quantity of computers provided to any one organization in a calendar year. Organizations receiving donated computer equipment from the University are responsible for all transit costs, installation requirements, software licenses and disposal costs. Prior to the donation of computer equipment, the recipient will be required to review and sign a liability form.
What is included?
Among the items routinely available for donation include desktop hardware (CPU), monitors and printers. Computer equipment donated by Central Connecticut State University will not include any University licensed software applications or operating systems (e.g. Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office, Word Perfect, etc). Unfortunately, due to our licensing agreements, we are unable to provide these materials to you and recipients of donated equipment will need to locate a source for these items outside of the University.
