How we are Funded
The Computers for Schools+ program is managed in Saskatchewan by Saskatchewan Technology Renewal Inc, a registered non-profit charitable organization. Funding of the program is provided by Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada. Our shop and warehouse space as well as utilities/communications costs and some logistics handling are provided to us by SaskTel.
Please consider making a monetary donation to improve our ability to deliver the program. Tax receipts will be issued for all monetary donations. To make such a donation, please send an Interac e-transfer payment to firstname.lastname@example.org or click on the Donate button below.
Being a largely volunteer based program, it is sometimes a challenge for us to handle the timely delivery and refurbishment of all the computers donated to CFS. We appeal to corporate donors to assist Computers for Schools as much as possible by preparing and delivering their donated equipment directly to the nearest Computers for Schools+ Refurbishment Centre.
Security of Donated Equipment
All donated hard drives and SSDs are thoroughly wiped and reformatted before a new operating system (if requested) is installed. We will provide certificates of data destruction if required.
Equipment that Makes the Grade
