Computers for
Student Success


COMPUTER DONATIONS


The heart of the program is tax deductible donations from businesses. Approximately 95% of the business computers donated are refurbished and given out to students. Many individuals and companies large and small have donated computers to the program and all are greatly appreciated, but Sentara Healthcare has provided the most by far. Over $1.50 million worth of Gift-in-Kind donations have been provided to the program from all sources. To donate computers to the program, contact us at
757-512-5807
(12-5 PM) or TCCCompClub@gmail.com to discuss your donations. Arrangements can be made to pick up donations from businesses. All hard drives are wiped using secure erase in accordance with NIS standards or destroyed.

Sample form screenshot Funding
The Computers for Student Success program works from a small budget for staff, Student Government Association (SGA) funding, and money raised from donations and raffles. The program runs 25 hours a week plus additional time to pick up donations from businesses and delivery to Non-Profits. The college provides limited funding for two part time staff to help manage the program. TCC Virginia Beach SGA provided funding of $3,800 for the 2015-2016 school year. The rest of the money to operate the program must come from donations, repairs and scrapping of old computers. Approximately $30,000 was made from donations, processing fees, and scrapping in 2015. SGA funds, raffle  and donation money is used to buy, parts, supplies, equipment and licensing for the program. Over $7,000 was used to buy licensing alone.

For tax deductibility, cash donations need to go through the TCC Foundation. If giving online, in the Please use my gift for section, select Computers for Student Success   (see the example above).

Our Most Urgent Needs
Currently we are in need of VGA Cords and Monitors. Licensing is always an issue and requires our largest funding at this point.
