The Natural Science Center of Greensboro (where my father works) happily
accepts donated computers and parts, and provides receipts as a 501-c
non-profit. You can have the added benefit of knowing that they're
probably going to be used running Linux to power exhibits or other
interesting behind-the-scenes systems at the NSC.
