Help Computers for Classrooms save lives by protecting yourself and others from COVID-19 with the CDC’s guidelines.
CFC’s showroom is open to the public.
Welcome to CFC, Providing Affordable Systems Since 1991 to Schools and Families.
Our mission is to help meet the growing demand for technology in classrooms, for low-income earners and other eligible candidates. Our staff and volunteers process donated PCs for recycling and sales. All computers are offered at a discount to those who are eligible.
We believe all students deserve access to technology in order to participate on a level playing field. Those with access to a computer and the internet are more equipped to flourish in the current technology-based landscape.
Millions of students in the US don’t have access to a computer or the internet. According to the 2012 US Census, this affects low-income, black and Latino populations the most. The “Achievement Gap” in our schools between Asian/Caucasian and Black/Hispanics is the same as the gap between those having home computers and connection to the Internet according to Dr. Rob Fairlie, a Professor of Economics at California State University, Santa Cruz. Dr. Fairlie has found that students in their senior year in high school with a home computer/laptop are twice as likely to attend college.
Security is of utmost importance. Once we have a received a donation, we extract any storage devices that potentially contain personal or sensitive information. Salvageable storage devices are securely wiped using tools on par with the U.S. Department of Defense. All other drives are physically degaussed and/or destroyed.
The majority of our units are preinstalled with Windows 10 are equipped with the Microsoft Office suite. Linux and Mac systems are sold whenever when stock is available, and are available for sale to the general public. All desktop and All-in-One units come with a year long guarantee and all laptop PCs are covered for a 90 day period.
Nothing goes to the landfill.
