Community Grants


SA Government - Digital Donation Program

The Digital Donation Program was created to assist South Australian community based not-for-profit organisations to access devices from surplus government stocks. By re-using surplus government devices across the State and making them available to not-for-profit organisations in the community, we are able to implement a program that benefits both the community and our planet.

Organisations must be eligible for the program and meet the specific requirements. The devices are free and the maximum amount for each eligible organisation is three.

Successful applicants can collect their devices at a pre-arranged time from the Computer Recycling Warehouse in Burton
