Step One: Renew

The moment you donate your used equipment to TMI it will begin to take on a new life. Your charitable donation will provide renewed strength and possibility into a local non-profit. As soon as your equipment is donated it will be added to the TMI Inventory list and we will begin the process of pairing your equipment with an applicant.

Step Two: Refurbish

Your equipment will be completely refurbished by trained TMI staff. Technology Management, Inc understands your privacy and safety concerns and guarantees that your equipment will be completely free of any previous data. Your equipment will be equipped with Windows 7 Professional or OS X (latest version compatible with hardware.)

Step Three: Repurpose

TMI's partners at the Arlington Community Foundation have been connecting local non-profits with charitable donations and grants since 1993.  Their skilled team will help TMI find just the right recipients for your donated equipment in order to maximize the positive impact on your local community.
