Donate the residual value of your decommissioned IT hardware to charity? Donate IT hardware, doing business and taking into account the effects on people, the environment and society. 7Digits does this too. We work together with various foundations that are committed to this goal and to which you can donate the residual value of your hardware. We are also partners of Dutch charities such as the Kwasa Foundation, the Cancer Relief Foundation and the Animal Protection Society.
“Did you say donate IT hardware?”
Yes, that’s right: you can donate the residual value of your written-off hardware to a good cause. And we’re happy to be the intermediary. It is a misconception that only large companies bother with CSR. Our experience is that many smaller companies often have more computers than staff. Once we have got the contacts with you, mediation with the chosen charity can start. They receive the sum after your hardware or equipment has been valued. So it’s a pure win-win situation.
Do you already know about the Kwasa Foundation?
Our cooperation with the Kwasa Foundation is a prime example of how we can join forces. They provide support for local foundations in South Africa. They do it with a clear mission: improving education for both young and old, combating and treating HIV and AIDS, and providing microcredit loans to local people.
Dierenbescherming the Dutch animal protection
7Digits has also been working for many years with Dierenbescherming, the Dutch Society for the Protection of Animals. They provide emergency assistance and are committed to animal welfare. The word ‘sustainability’ has a major part to play here too, as the Animal Protection Society’s ideal is that people in society should look after the welfare, health and integrity of animals sustainably.
How does this work?
The first step is to destroy all data completely and 100% secure. Test the hardware and prepare for sale by ‘refurbishing’. ICT Value Recovery contributes to the circular process: identification, testing, repair, data erasure and ICT recycling result in recovering value. This way you not only support the chosen charity, but also your decommissioned IT equipment gets a second life.
We are ISO 27001, 14001 & 9001 certified and offer extensive reporting options and also customization such as: on- and off- site erasing of data carriers and facilitating transport.

Has the circle been closed? Almost, because we are continuing to work towards a better world for people and animals, as well as a healthy environment. It’s what we call inspiring circularity. And at 7Digits, we are aiming to close the loop. Donated equipment is tested and repaired; remarketing can then begin. New owners will soon be found for the servers, computers and laptops you are disposing of. It’s all because we know that the neatly closed circle may just start off as a dot on the horizon.
More than just fine words
At 7Digits, it’s about keeping our promises. That’s why we do the following to inspire circularity.
