**Computers For Youth PC Drive


"Don't Throw Out Your Old Computer Systems!" Change a child’s life forever: Donate your old computer systems to low-income Georgia school children …you'll help raise academic performance, protect the environment, and ease your tax pain. We'll take care of ALL the details, including data-wiping each hard drive. We are asking members to donate the computer systems being replaced in their law firms and companies to Computers for Youth - Atlanta, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Call to action: Please contact the IT department in your law firm or company and arrange to make CFY-Atlanta the designated recipient of computers whenever they are phased out of service in your firm or company! We ask that you also make a cash donation of $5 per computer to help defray the cost of refurbishment and software licenses. CFY-Atlanta needs 900 donated computers in 2009 to meet its commitments to school children this year alone!

Computer equipment donations to CFY-Atlanta are an investment in your community:

  • Academic performance of children participating in CFY’s program has been shown to rise in documented research studies
  • Computer equipment is handled in a secure and environmentally responsible manner.
  • You'll get a CHARITABLE TAX DEDUCTION for the value of the donated equipment.
  • All hard drives are wiped clean of existing data using commercially available data-wiping software that complies with U.S. Department of Defense cleaning and sanitizing standard DoD 5220.22-M. Save your IT department the burden!

For further information regarding donation of computers, please contact Richard Hicks, Director, Computers for Youth at RHicks@cfy.org or call 404-367-9900.
