Computers and Training

We help qualified families and students reach their goals and improve their quality of life by providing computers and training.

 

 

 

We have distributed hundreds of computers to families and students in need. 

 

Businesses and other donate computers, and volunteers refurbish them.  All data from hard drives is erased and we install Microsoft Windows 10.

 

Applied Technology Foundation (dba TechCharities and Computer Campus) was established in 2013  as a non-profit, community-based organization with 501 (c) 3 status.

 
2018 Shipment to Africa

We partner with other charitable agencies to distribute the computers and work together to provide training.

Clients contribute a small administrative fee to help offset the costs of refurbishing the computer. The fee is waived if the client completes a pre-approved basic course of computer skills.
