This Earth Day, join Salesforce and iD Tech to reduce pollution and create opportunities for low-income students by donating to human-I-T!
human-I-T is a nonprofit that works to divert e-waste from landfills and close the digital divide. By collecting used electronics, repairing and refurbishing them, then redistributing them to students and non-profit organizations, human-I-T promotes sustainable opportunities for people and the planet. To date, human-I-T has distributed over 65,000 devices to individuals in need, assisted over 64,000 households with access to low-cost internet connectivity, and provided free digital literacy training for nearly 2,300 people.
Please show your support for the planet and students this Earth Day by making a financial contribution using the simple form. Your contribution supports our team in every step of the technology refurbishment process, keeping thousands of pounds of e-waste out of landfills globally!

This past summer, Salesforce, iD Tech, and human-I-T collaborated to address the digital divide. Through Coding Our Future, Salesforce and iD Tech partnered to provide scholarships for 200 underrepresented minority students in the DC metro area to attend Virtual Tech Camps. To bridge the connectivity gap, human-I-T provided hot spots and internet to students who lacked access. Scholarship student Jermaine Drakes Jr. shared the impact of the program: “Coding Our Future fueled the fire for me and gave me passion for tech. I appreciate all Salesforce, iD Tech and human-I-T have done for me.”
From the start, Salesforce has sought to change the world for the better through technology that builds stronger relationships. Between companies and their customers. Between employees and far-flung teams. Between governments and their citizens. Between people who want to make a difference.
