Technology Donation Guidelines

These guidelines refer to an American community school, but may be useful to donors who wish to donate technological hardware to NGOs or similar organisations.

The Guidelines ask the donor to determine whether or not a donated computer will meet instructional needs and hardware standards by answering the following questions: Is the donated computer compatible with existing hardware? Is the donated computer compatible with the existing network? Will the donated computer access the Internet with an acceptable speed? Are replacement parts available and affordable? What is the cost of refurbishing the computer? Will students and teachers be able to use the donated computer effectively?
