Mission Statement

National Cristina Foundation (NCF) provides computer technology and solutions to give people with disabilities, students at risk and economically disadvantaged persons the opportunity, through training, to lead more independent and productive lives. Since it's founding in 1984, without charging a fee for its work or technology, NCF has been a conduit of hope, bridging the gap among corporations and community organizations and public agencies who train people with special needs.

International

Every day across America and around the world, National Cristina Foundation is working to ensure that used computer technology resources that no longer meet an enterprise's or individual's needs are given a second productive life as a tool for developing human potential.

Our grassroots partners are thousands of not for profit organizations or public agencies. All applicants are screened for eligibility to receive donated equipment. There are no membership fees. NCF partner organizations submit plans that highlight specific equipment needs and describe how donated technology will be used to help the people they serve to lead more independent and productive lives.

Alliance for Technology Refurbishing & Reuse (AFTRR)

The Alliance for Technology Refurbishing and Reuse (AFTRR) consists of a growing number of nonprofit technology refurbishers seeking to increase the awareness of the contributions of their organizations, individually and collectively, to a wide range of populations in need. AFTRR seeks to establish a common national voice for all such organizations as well as affiliate organizations who stand to benefit directly or indirectly from an increase in the volume and availability of low cost and no cost computers for their respective populations.

AFTRR member organizations vary widely in size, organizational model, populations served, staffing and related resources. Regardless of these parameters, each was established under a similar set of circumstances and targets the elimination of the Digital Divide as their ultimate goal.

AFTRR is a project of the National Cristina Foundation.

STATEMENT FROM THE CEO/Executive Director

"NCF has placed millions of computers and related technology across America and abroad and has helped millions of people. There are 54 million people in the US alone who have disabilities and countless others who are in need. Your used and excess computer technology can reach many more.

Heartfelt thanks to all our donors whose generous contributions of computer technology help the National Cristina Foundation link lives to their promise."
