Free Geek makes in-kind grants of refurbished electronic equipment to eligible organizations. The computer hardware they grant is used and comes to them via donations made by individuals and organizations in their community. It is then tested and built by their staff and volunteers. They primarily grant complete PC computer, which come installed with Linux Mint as an operating system. Recipients must be able to pick up hardware in person from Free Geek's office in Portland, Oregon.
Free Geek's mission is to sustainably reuse technology, enable digital access, and provide education to create a community that empowers people to realize their potential.
