Who We Are

Arizona StRUT Mission

To improve the competitiveness of Arizona’s technical workforce by:

  • Supporting applied learning in our educational systems through scholarships and donated electronics & technology
  • Providing refurbished equipment to education and community non-profit organizations
  • Promoting diversity through technical education and work experience
  • Disposing electronic waste responsibly
  • Advocating responsible recycling
  • If you are a qualified Arizona non-profit organization and would like to request refurbished computer equipment from AZStRUT, please complete our Computer Request Form.


    A Return on Innovation (ROI)
    Formed in 1997 by founding sponsors Intel & Motorola, Arizona StRUT is a partnership between local schools and businesses, where students learn new skills by refurbishing used computer equipment. The equipment is then donated to schools and other qualified non-profit organizations throughout Arizona. Over 100 companies such as Intel, Avnet and APS currently donate hardware through the program.

    Arizona StRUT teachers train over 500 students each year at our 15 refurbishing schools across Arizona. The students are given the opportunity to work on computers and get the kind of valuable hands-on experience that companies are looking for, and the completed systems are donated to non-profit organizations such as local schools and charities.

    Last year alone over 190 schools and non-profit organizations received over 3000 refurbished computers through AZ StRUT, the estimated value of these donations exceeds $500,000.00. Qualified schools or non-profits who would like to request a donation can complete our Computer Request Form for consideration.

    Arizona StRUT is a 501c3 (non-profit) organization.
