Newport-Mesa does accept some donated computer equipment. If you are interested in donating any kind of technology equipment (computers, monitors, printers, scanners, etc.), please contact us.
Donation of computer or printer equipment
Whether the equipment is new or used, we check to make sure that it is in good working condition and that it is compatible with our extensive network and security management systems. Please note that computer systems must be compatible with Windows 7, some computers are compatible with Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 only, and cannot be accepted at the moment.
If you are considering donating new equipment, thank you! Check with your school of choice, to see what kind of equipment, software, or peripherals they need the most. If it's computer or printer equipment, it's best to donate the funds to the school, so they can purchase the equipment. This way there are no compatibility issues, it's enterprise quality and it would come with the appropriate software and manufacturer support.
Donation of software
Donation must include any relevant license documents, original media provided by the publisher, any related support documentation, and proof of purchase. Required documents should be provided to the school of your choice with a letter expressing your intent to donate the software title to the school. IT will confirm that software meets our current standards and is supported with respect to our network, computers, and support processes, and will discuss with the receiving school if there are any additional requirements for installation.
