Helping Computers Assisting People with our Mission

Computers Assisting People aka CAP Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit Ohio corporation formed in 1997. Long before the term "digital divide" became ubiquitous, CAP volunteers were working to bring the life-changing power of technology to all the people of Cleveland an beyond.

CAP Inc. relies on volunteers and donations and is pursuing grants and other fund-raising opportunities.


We need a steady supply of donated computers, printers and software as well as business and office supplies and equipment. Our criteria for accepting donations is based on the needs of the eventual recipient non-profit organizations. We are currently accepting PCs that are able to run Windows 10 (we have legal licenses from Microsoft for Windows 10). Please don't remove the RAM or CPU or hard drive before you donate. We don't need stripped systems that turn out to be a case and unpopulated motherboard.

We will make sure that your hard drive is completely wiped before we donate it. We uses a process recommended by the Department of Defense where each hard drive is completely overwritten with a random series of 0's and 1's. We do this 3 times. We still recommend that you wipe, format, fdisk your hard drives before doantion. We will not keep anything (software, drivers, data) from your system. It will be wiped completely.

Besides PCs,


CAP runs on volunteers so we always need people. Various levels of skill and commitment are needed. If you can help every week - great! If only once a month or less, we still need you.


Of course we are in desperate need of financial contributions to maintain and grow the program. We need to pay the rent and utilities and waste and occasionally buy some tools and equipment for our work.

Since we are a 501c3 non-profit, you (or your company) may be able to deduct your donation from your taxes. When you donate something, you are given a signed receipt listing the items that you gave. We keep a copy for our records. We do not put a value on the items that you donate. Please consult a tax professional for more information.

Any amount is appreciated and will be used frugally.
