Computer donations are recognized by the IRS as tax deductible only if the recipient holds the legal status of a non-profit organization—which CWB now does! Donors can take the charitable contribution off of their income tax obligation by itemizing their deductions through Schedule A of IRS Form 1040.
Some corporate donors can get additional tax benefits by virtue of IRS Section 170(e)(3). This section provides that if a corporation donates “inventory” (i.e., property sold in the normal course of business) to certain charitable organizations, it may receive an additional tax benefit
(and provides a deduction for corporate contributions of inventory as much as twice the donor's adjusted basis in the property).
The IRS has determined that Computers without Borders is exempt from federal income tax under section 501(C)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
Contributions to CWB are therefore deductible under section 170 of the code.
Individuals or companies that donate technology to us can therefore help us achieve our mission of enhancing the education of the developing world, take advantage of tax savings, and help reduce the environmental footprint of the electronic age!
Computers Without Borders is in need of a wide variety of technology equipment. Please see the complete list of needed equipment below.
