As part of its Community Relations program, the Western Digital Foundation provides an opportunity for nonprofit organizations to request product donations. These donations may include new WD products for fundraising purposes such as raffles or auctions, or refurbished WD hard drives for schools or nonprofit organizations for internal uses.
We ask that organizations limit requests to one per organization, per year. Requests must be received no later than 4-6 weeks prior to the event date to be considered. At this time, product donations are limited to U.S.-based charities. Other product donations are managed through our partnerships with global nonprofit organizations providing computer technology to underserved populations.
To be considered for a product donation, please submit the following information.
A written request which includes:
- The organization name
- A description of the organization
- The organization’s tax ID number for nonprofit status
- A brief description of the event/raffle/auction and how the proceeds will be used
- The date which the item is needed
- Product requested (optional)
- Shipping address (non P.O. Box only)
- Contact name, telephone number, and email address *
*Please note that email is our main form of communication for product donation requests. An email address contact is required on the request.
If your agency has an affiliation with Western Digital or HGST, please include this information.
Donations to individuals will not be considered.
Product donations are approved at the discretion of the Western Digital Foundation according to guidelines set forth by the Foundation Board of Directors. Products are selected based on availability and budget. Approval of product donation requests cannot be guaranteed.
Agencies receiving donations will be required to complete a Western Digital Foundation Charitable Contributions Receipt.
