Questions about your hardware donation in cooperation with aid organisations
Which devices can be donated?
There is a need for various devices. Refugees need mobile hardware (mobile phones, smartphones, laptops, power banks) to stay in contact with their families. Aid organisations themselves need office hardware (laptops, printers) to coordinate their services on site. You can donate both old equipment and new goods. Obviously, the equipment should be fully functional.
How safe is the refurbishing process?
With 30 years of experience and around 40,000 refurbishments and installations per year, we are experts in IT refurbishment. The remanufacturing process includes qualified inspection, repair and cleaning - including secure data erasure. You can find more information about our technical background here.
What happens with the equipment?
If your request does not refer to a specific project, we will give you an overview of the projects currently running. We then check the current needs at the organisations. You may decide on a project. Then we collect the equipment, check it, prepare it and deliver it to the places where it is needed. We remain in close contact with you, the donors.
Will I receive a donation receipt?
Yes, the recipient organisations can issue a certificate of your donation. The procedure is as follows: You issue an invoice to the recipient organisation stating that you waive payment in exchange for a donation receipt. You then receive the donation receipt from the recipient organisation. We can support you in this process by, on the one hand, sending you a receipt as soon as we have received the equipment and by estimating the value of the equipment for you.
