Requesting Donations from TechServ

    Please fill out this form as best as possible. We apologize that it is a bit long, but the more information we have, the easier it is for us to ensure your donation is prompt and goes smoothly. However, don't worry if there is some information or details that you are unsure about, and feel free to contact us with any questions.

    For portions of your request that we are unable to fufil, we typically direct donation recipients to Nonprofit Technology Resources.

    TechServ will try to accommodate your request to the best of our ability, but please be aware that there are no guarantees in regards to specific requests. Also note that at this time, TechServ has no capability for delivery, so all donation requests must be picked up from TechServ on Drexel University’s campus.

    Please tell us a little bit about your organization. If you have worked with TechServ before what was the nature of the interaction?

    • If you plan to request more than 15 systems, we ask that, if possible for your organization, you submit donation requests in groups of 15 or less. (Ex. 20 systems as two groups of 10, 30 systems as two groups of 15, 40 systems as 4 groups of 10 or  two groups of 15 and a group of 10 ...etc.).

    • If your organization requires more than 15 systems in one batch or time constraints are present include these concerns in the additional comments section at the end of this form.

    • This is due to logistics/transportation issues: We encourage multiple small requests rather than single large ones since it clears up space in our workshop, and gets systems in the hands of people who need them sooner.

    • Also, most cars can only hold 7-12 computer towers, accessories and monitors - by having smaller numbers, donations pick-ups tend to run smoother.

    Number of desktop computers towers requested*:

    Number of LCD monitors requested*:

    Number of keyboards requested*:

    Number of computer mice requested*:

    Number of laptop computers requested*:

    Do you require any additional items not listed above? Please list here:

    Operating System:

    Do these computers require an operating system to be installed by TechServ?

    • YES - Select this if you plan to receive the computers and immediately begin using them - 'works out of the box'.

    • NO - Select this if you plan to install an operating system on your own. This option is for advanced users or locations with technical support on site.

    YesNoNot Sure

    For PC's we at TechServ install the Linux distribution Ubuntu. Linux distributions are free and open source and its easy to find free and open source software to use. You can TAKE A TOUR of Ubuntu here (opens in a new window)!


    Regarding Networking Capabilities:
    Unless otherwise requested in the additional comments section, all computers will be donated with LAN networking capabilities. (No systems come with WIFI / WLAN by default - only standard Ethernet connections)

    As of April 2014 a typical system has the following specifications:

    • CPU Type: Intel Pentium 4 / AMD Athlon XP or Higher

    • CPU Speed: 2.0 GHz or Higher 

    • Memory (RAM) amount: 1GB or higher

    • Hard Drive: 40 GB or Higher

    • Optical Drive: Any, but DVD-ROM or CD-RW (CD Burner) likely

    • Monitors: LCD monitors, any size 

    I acknowledge that TechServ has no capability for delivery, so all donation requests must be picked up from TechServ on Drexel University’s Main Campus.

    We ask that you do not submit more than one request at a time. Once you receive one batch of systems you can immediately submit another request for more systems.
