Charitable Donations 

Computer World actively supports numerous philanthropic causes in our community. Our commitment is to support causes that serve the greater good.

We receive countless requests for charitable givings every month but because we like to support as many of these causes as possible, we tend to make more of the smaller contributions rather than a few large ones. In other words, please do not ask us for a free iPad for your cause, we do not donate products but we are able to help in other ways.

With the organizations we help, we prefer to support those who support us. While we truly believe in giving, should we support your cause we would certainly hope that you would make it a priority to make any Apple-related purchases from us.
