Welcome to PC Pledge 100, a national campaign to connect surplus corporate computers with millions of low-income American families who desperately need, but cannot afford technology to build digital literacy skills essential to their future success.
You can support this important cause by contributing 100 or more qualifying computers – a generous act that transforms low-value surplus into life-changing gifts. Equipment donated through PC Pledge 100 supports Connect2Compete, an FCC-lead initiative to promote digital literacy in low-income communities through discounted high-speed Internet, low-cost computers and free digital literacy training. Watch the FCC press conference announcing PC Pledge 100:

Minimum specifications for qualifying equipment include: an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB RAM, 80GB hard drive, DVD player and wireless Internet card and Ethernet card.
With more than a decade of experience in refurbishing and redeploying large volumes of corporate computers, Redemtech is uniquely qualified to support C2C as the exclusive hardware provider.
We are North America’s top-selling Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher (MAR), and through our Serious Good approach we can ensure a simple, worry-free donation process. A leading analyst firm wrote last year that “Redemtech Re-writes the Rules on IT Equipment Donation” by addressing key issues for data security, environmental liability, software licensing and administration.
Corporations that reuse 100 computers through donation can not only can help an American family get online, but can:
