Free Geek’s mission is to sustainably reuse technology, enable digital access, and provide education to create a community that empowers people to realize their potential.
Bottom Line for Portland
In 2019, Free Geek was able to give away over 1,300 refurbished computers back into our community—complete with a full year of free tech support. We collected 1,135,781 pounds of e-waste. We were able to share our knowledge with over 1,600 members of our community in 600 classes. That's over 4,000 hours of tech education. Our organization served a total of 35,350 people in 2019 alone. That’s 5% of Portland’s overall population.
“I witnessed from inside my car how my seven students safely received their sanitized computers from Free Geek. It was a magical moment that illustrated how in times of hardship we can clearly see the light coming. I sincerely hope the team at Free Geek can keep shining its light and making such an important difference in the lives of very deserving students for many years to come.” —Roosevelt High School teacher Elena García-Velasco
