While we appreciate any offer of old computers, we are no longer interested in the more common machines that were produced since the 1980s. Specifically, we have more Commodore 64 computers than we know what to do with. We are not at all interested in common PC clones (see below for recycling options). However, we are still interested in old computer books, manuals, magazines and software for any platform, with special emphasis on mini- and mainframe computers.

If you are not in the San Francisco Bay Area, here are some suggestions for where to donate:

  • For machines less than 5 years old: a local school or church
  • For machines of any age: the engineering department of a local college
  • A local charity such as The Salvation Army or Goodwill

To donate your vintage computer items, please e-mail  Your donation will be rewarded with a VCF T-shirt and a V.I.P. pass to any future Vintage Computer Festival event you attend.
