You can support C4K by donating computer equipment for our students, or financial or in-kind contributions to help keep our program running. Computers4Kids is a local program supported in large part by our community. Without the support from the business community, school districts, and community members, C4K would not be able to provide our youth with a safe and fun place to learn after school, the technology training they need to get ahead, and the tools they need to do so. Gifts and donations of computer equipment to Computers4Kids are essential to meeting the needs of our area youth. Save money by donating! Contributions are tax-deductible. Please ask us about earning additional state tax credits by donating money, goods, and services through our membership in the Neighborhood Assistance Program.

Computers4Kids relies on support from the community in order to provide all of our services free of charge. All donations to Computers4Kids stay in the Charlottesville/Albemarle community to help our local youth in need. Computers4Kids accepts gifts of cash and bequests from Virginia residents. C4K is a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization. In most cases, donations to C4K are fully deductible for donors who itemize deductions on Schedule A of their personal income tax return.
