Donations to Schools and Nonprofits
Computers for Learning program
Computers for Learning is a government-wide program established by Executive Order 12999 whereby educationally useful excess federal equipment can be transferred directly to schools and educational nonprofit organizations.
The Computers for Learning website is hosted by GSA to help facilitate the transfer of computer equipment between federal agencies and schools and educational nonprofit organizations.
All Computers for Learning (CFL) participants must be located in the United States, the U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, or the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.
