Adopt a School is a project of Ukraine Protection and Development Fund a non-profit registered in Ukraine which collects used office and school electronics and delivers them to students and schools in Ukraine to mitigate the educational disaster the disruption and devastation the Russian full scale invasion has caused.
We help by collecting and distributing used computers, laptops, iPads and other tablets, printers, other school supplies and office equipment for delivery to Ukraine.
How You Can Help
Students from your school can donate used and unwanted equipment at a collection point on campus at the end of the school year.
Your school will write off equipment at the end of the year. Donate it to us and it will have a second life!
Business Owner / Community Activist
Establish a collection point for used working equipment, and donate it to us.
We will arrange pick-up, test the donated equipment and deliver on to needy students and educational institutions in Ukraine.
What Can Be Donated
iPads and other tablets should be less than 5 years old, Laptops and other equipment less than 10 years old. All items should be in working condition. Please kindly do not offer items with broken screens or memory removed: the cost of fixing them is too high.
Ukraine Protection and Development Fund has funding in place for shipping.
Any and all cash donations received will be beneficial for buying cables, batteries, shipping and allowing us to continue doing our work helping students.
We welcome community and local business support for collections, shipping and donations.
Collected materials can be donated directly to UPDF or to TapFusion a 501(c)3 US based non-profit that will pass the items to UPDF in Ukraine.
Donations to TapFusion are tax-deductible in the United States.
How Your School Can help
Secure collection point
A secure collection point on school grounds or other convenient location is required.
A small communication campaign such as posters on message boards in visible areas.
Volunteers who will inventory and help pack the donations and prepare for the shipping company. If assistance is needed with volunteers, we can reach out as well.
Adopt a School Will
Arrange pick up
by the company that will deliver to Ukraine.
Receive the items
in Ukraine and check that they are still working.
Deliver to schools,
universities, other educational institutions, and individual students as needed; and
Report back with photos and videos
highlighting the distribution of the equipment.
Student and Faculty Participation
We hope that this is a foundation for long term relationship building including possibly language exchange, sharing perspectives in history, social studies, politics or world literature courses, perhaps even student, guest Professor or sports exchanges.
And we hope some in the community may wish to come to Ukraine to see it first hand; maybe even to help rebuild a school or community, once the war is over.
