We Create Educational Experiences From Used Technology

We're AZStRUT, and we put real-world technology training to work for Arizona's students and educators. Our model program teaches students valuable technology skills; provides quality refurbished computers to schools and non-profits around the state; and benefits the environment by diverting old equipment from our landfills. It's a classic win-win-win situation which benefits everyone involved. With your help, together we all come out ahead!

AZStRUT recycles responsibly and all of our proceeds benefit our charitable cause. When you donate your old electronics to us, you can be sure it will become part of our mission!

Our History

Formed in 1997 by founding sponsors Intel & Motorola, AZStRUT is a partnership between local schools and businesses, where students learn new skills by refurbishing used computer equipment. The equipment is then donated to schools and other qualified non-profit organizations throughout Arizona. Over 100 companies such as Intel, Avnet and APS currently donate hardware through the program.

AZStRUT teachers train over 500 students each year at our 15 refurbishing schools across Arizona. The students are given the opportunity to work on computers and get the kind of valuable hands-on experience that companies are looking for, and the completed systems are donated to non-profit organizations such as local schools and charities.

Last year alone over 190 schools and non-profit organizations received over 3000 refurbished computers through AZStRUT, the estimated value of these donations exceeds $400,000. Qualified schools or non-profits who would like to request a donation can complete our Computer Request Form for consideration.

AZStRUT is a 501c3 (non-profit) organization and all donations, financial or equipment, will receive a donation form.
