The Smart State PC Donation Program was created to assist South Australian community based, not-for-profit organisations to access personal computer equipment from surplus government stocks.

Rural community members use the computers donated through the Smart State PC Donation Program at the Alexandrina Connect Community Centre.

The Government of South Australia aims to reduce its ecological footprint as part of its commitment to sustainability and climate change. By re-using surplus government computers across the state and making them available to community groups without cost, we are able to implement a scheme that benefits both the community and the planet.

A maximum of three (3) PCs can be applied for in any given Round, and each organisation is restricted to one application per round. If successful, an organisation cannot apply for more PCs for 12 months, unless exceptional circumstances are demonstrated.

There is no cost to your organisation however, upgrades and additional equipment is at your organisation's expense. If successful, you will receive a hard drive, LCD monitor, keyboard, mouse and cables. More information and conditions can be found in the guidelines and frequently asked questions (FAQ) for the current Round. These Guidelines and FAQ may change from Round to Round, so please be sure to download the current version before applying.
