Technology is one of the biggest expenses that non-profit organizations face on a regular basis. It’s hard to function in today’s society without computers, printers, routers, and other pricey accessories. Even if you try hard to budget for these costs, the expense can be overwhelming.
But there is a little known secret to how non-profit organizations can save large amounts of money when it comes to buying computers. . . College Surplus Sales.
Often when colleges upgrade their technology, they auction off their old equipment at significantly reduced prices. The policies and inventories vary by college, but with a little research, you might find a steal of a deal, or two!
Here are a few examples:
At Northern Kentucky University’s Procurement Services Department Surplus Sale in Highland Heights, KY, you can buy a Dell Latitude D610-630 laptop for $100.00, a Dell Optiplex 230-280 Tower or Mini for $50.00, Apple Products (Macs and laptops) for $100.00, an executive desk chair for $10.00, or a large, wooden conference table for $50.00.
At Stanford University’s Surplus Sale in Stanford, CA, you can get Dell C640, D600, D610, D510, and Dell Inspiron 8500 & 8600 laptops for $50.00 to $185.00.
