Tech 4 Troops
Our vision is to turn your donations into Training, Education and Technology for Veterans and their families in need
Working computers can provide a new life to struggling veterans rather than being discarded.
Many veterans face two significant barriers when competing in the modern workforce: the lack of a computer and the lack of the skills needed to effectively use that computer.
T4T supports these veterans by collecting used technology that would usually end up in landfills, then refurbishing the laptops and other devices.
They provide the reloaded technology, along with training, to veterans in need for low or no cost.
Who We Are:
Tech For Troops was started in Richmond, Virginia by a mother and son team who were passionate about military veterans in need and wanted to do something to help. In 2013 after hearing about the force reductions and a huge number of returning soldiers, they decided to collect used PCs and Macs, refurbish them, and provide them to veterans’ support organizations.
Since then we’ve grown to supporting veterans nationwide and continue to look for ways to offer workforce support and training.
WHO WE HELP
Richmond area recipients must attend a Veteran Improvement Basic Computer Literacy Training class prior to receiving the gift of technology. If you are Computer Literate, we will ask you to “test” out to show your competency. If outside of Richmond, we can arrange to have your equipment shipped (PO boxes not accepted). Applying for a scholarship may help reduce the cost of the equipment being shipped.
Some of the organizations that have received computers from
Tech For Troops are:
- Veterans’ Employment Program
- DLW Veterans Outreach and Training Center
- American Legion Posts across the US
- Wounded Warrior Project
