Refurbished Computers & Laptops for Churches

-

A Growing Need

With the growth of technology comes an increasing need for affordable, quality computers. They are the key to education and business training for the next generation. Yet, in many parts of the U.S. and across the globe, computers are still a luxury.

InterConnection sees the challenge and is working to solve it. Since 1999, they have run a state-of-the-art computer refurbishing plant in Seattle, Washington. Using donated computers and parts, they build Microsoft certified, refurbished desktop and laptop computers. Each certified refurbished computer runs Windows 7 and Microsoft Office.

As a non-profit organization, they partner with organizations like the Peace Corps, World Vision and others across the globe. Together they identify areas of need and the technology required. Once identified, appropriate computers are packed and sent out.

InterConnection has shipped more than 35,000 computers to 40 countries. Schools, non-governmental organizations, libraries, and technology access programs across the globe have benefited.

Besides their international work, InterConnection also strives to resource the 25% of U.S. households without a computer. They partner with groups in all 50 states to provide computers to non-profit organizations.

See the impact map below to see some of the areas that have benefitted

A Shared Need

Many churches and faith based organizations find themselves in a similar place. In need of computers to complete their work, but without the budget to buy equipment. InterConnection’s online store allows churches to buy computers at a fraction of the cost.

Windows 7 laptops start at $139 with Microsoft Office pre-installed and a one year warranty. Other discounted products include desktops, Macs, LCD monitors, Windows Multipoint servers, keyboards and mice.

If your church would like to take part, InterConnection has made it easy. You can view a list of available computers by visiting interconnection.org/nonprofit. To make a purchase, create an account for your church, including details about your 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status. InterConnection will review your application and get back to you about the program details.

Have technology needs beyond what is listed on the InterConnection website? Contact them directly. They often receive used electronics, including TVs, LCD projectors and tablets, which are not listed on the online store.

If you church isn’t in need of computers but has some to donate, InterConnection would gladly take them. Through their free mail in program you can send your used computer to them and receive a giving credit towards your taxes.

  1. Church at the Well is a new church plant in the city of Saint Petersburg,Florida. We are praying and seeking any church or person that can donate 3 laptops to our new churchplanr. Our budget is quite limited and the laptops will assist our leaders in their respective ministries. The laptops will be used for our children’s church, worship team, and media. Thank you in advance and God Bless.

    • Thanks for your comment. ChurchTechToday does not supply churches with laptops. I’m sorry. If you check out some of the resources in the article above, you should be able to get some help. TechSoup.org is a great place to begin.

  3. Good Afternoon,

    I am contacting you in request of a laptop, software and printer for our church, Restoration Community Baptist in Brockton, MA. We would be in great appreciation to receive one, giving us the ability to do church business, (1099’s, letters, programs, bible lessons, etc.)

    We are a very small congregation, with limited resources to make the purchase of needed request.

  4. Hi I’m pastor Clara of living waters church in Albuquerque, NM and I was praying and believing that your company could donate a projector to a church in need we would greatly appreciate it.

  5. Calvary greetings to you.

    Please I am hereby requesting for a computer from you.
    I have a great need for a computer to help me and the church to easy our work.

  6. Wow! That is absolutely amazing. It is hard to comprehend that InterConnection has shipped more than 35,000 computers to 40 countries. When you think of the impact that will have on literally thousands of people’s lives it is truly amazing. Helping school children in developing countries and right here at home. The work of non-profit organizations will also be greatly increased. Giving people the tools to help them change there own lives and build better communities. Thank you for being involved in this fantastic work.

    I am the minister at Appleby Church and this is a cool idea to pass on to both our ‘tech’ committee and our property committee that is big into recycling and keeping things out of landfills. The property committee often runs recycling drives and they may come across some old laptops or computers. I’m amazed at the free mail in program. I’ll pass this on to both them and Appleby’s very active Global Outreach committee. Thanks and have a great day.
