Microsoft Register Refurbisher and Education Reseller

Organization Name: Minnesota Computers for Schools
Description: Minnesota Computers for Schools works collaboratively with schools and educationally focused community organizations to provide technology solutions and computer skills training to disadvantaged individuals and those with special needs.

In partnership with the Stillwater Correctional Facility, MCFS employs and trains inmates to refurbish and recycle computers donated from businesses. Data is scrubbed from the computer, in compliance with the Department of Defense standards, in a secure building by staff before the equipment arrives inside the prison.

The refurbished computers are sold to schools and educational nonprofits for a nominal fee. Each computer is customized for the school’s and individual's needs and comes with a warranty and tech support.

MCFS accepts donated computer and office equipment from businesses and organizations. Donations can be delivered to our warehouse in Bayport, MN or if there is a quantity involved we can arrange to pick it up. There are some restrictions so please contact us for the details.
