The Shore Foundation

The Shore Foundation refurbishes phased-out corporate computers and provides them to people in-need through relationships with local schools and non-profits. The Shore Foundation is a Microsoft Registered Refurbisher, a NY state registered eWaste (electronic waste) recycler and a 501c3 non-profit organization. What began as an RIT student philanthropy project in 2018 has grown to provide over 2,000 refurbished computers to low-income individuals and families. At The Shore Foundation, we recognize that students and families from underprivileged situations depend on the support of school and non-profit organizations to overcome barriers to success. As a result, we forge collaborations with these organizations who can best connect us to the existing need, so our refurbished computers get to the people who need them most. The Shore Foundation installs Microsoft citizenship licenses as part of the Microsoft Registered Refurbisher Program. This requires the refurbished computer to be distributed to educational institutions, nonprofit charitable organizations and other approved recipients who meet low-income parameters (receiving state benefits based on need). We are looking to expand on our relationships with eligible recipients and organizations. The more computers that can be provided directly to people in-need, the better it is for everyone in our community.
