Anybody looking for  laptops/computers for their non profit should check these links out. You must be a nonprofit to qualify.

I wonder if they give special discounts to nonprofits?

If you are a certified nonprofit then you are eligible for special prices and can order from connectall.org. Also, any individuals who qualify as "low income", also have access to these computes. Laptops start at $99 with Microsoft Office and Windows 10 pre installed and come with a one year warranty.

What documentation does an individual need to submit to qualify as low income?

Thanks for sharing this great resource! There is a lot of interest in this topic among our Digital Inclusion Fellows and in our digital inclusion online community.

The shipping from this refurbisher looks pretty reasonable, which is great. There are many places where there are not local refurbishers, non profit or otherwise.

Low cost refurbished computers are a great option for many individuals, however it's worth saying that for many a $99 dollar computer is still out of reach.

Here is a great resource for locating a refurbisher in your area: The Alliance for Technology Reuse & Recycling (AFTRR) locator map.
