We have a local charity called Computer Banc: they accept old computer hardware, clean and fix/restore it, and give it to schools, churches, the poor, and charitable institutions that can't afford computers... even nursing homes, where the oldsters can use it for web surfing, video conferencing with remote family members, games, etc. What the Computer Banc can't use, they responsibly recycle. I'm sure you have something similar near you somewhere and can possibly get a tax credit for it.

It has become harder to donate to such outfits as they tend to like and need stuff that's windows-compatible and relatively new. They can't do much with an old VAX or your IMSAI from high school. And donating to schools directly is problematic, as their struggling IT departments really want stuff that's closely compatible and standardized, not a mish-mash of incompatible hardware and operating systems that are obsolete and which their students do not wish to learn on.

There's always ebay I guess. Somebody may want it for the cost of shipping, for the nostalgia lulz, as the kids say.
