About PCs for People
Founded in 1998, PCs for People is a national leader in digital inclusion. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, every project, program and initiative at PCs for People is centered on getting low-cost computers and affordable broadband internet into the homes of low-income individuals. Through an unwavering commitment to the communities we serve, we have:
- Provided 155,000 people with home computers
- Connected 165,000 people to low-cost internet
- And recycled over 8 millions of pounds of electronics.
Digital inclusion efforts such as ours are essential in today’s society, where it is increasingly hard to access education, healthcare or employment opportunities without access to a computer and the internet. Our model is a self-sustainable social enterprise centered on building community value in every part of our program.
Any usable computers obtained through this service have their data securely wiped using our NAID AAA certified process and are then refurbished for distribution.
