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.
PC equipment will be donated to organisations that can show in their application that the equipment will be used to benefit the wider South Australian community, especially where they will be used:
- to enhance support services or educational opportunities for the elderly, socially isolated or at risk groups;
- for assisting special populations, such as Aboriginal communities, disability action or support groups, or culturally or linguistically diverse populations;
- for the support of socially or economically disadvantaged people;
- for the training and development of individuals or volunteers;
- to improve the wellbeing, quality of life, community participation and life management skills of individuals, families and communities through programs and services; and/or
- develop and strengthen community relationships and community spirit throughout South Australia.
In order to be eligible for equipment through this program, organisations must be a not-for-profit South Australian organisation and be either:
- Incorporated under the Associations Incorporation Act 1985;
- Incorporated under the Aboriginal Councils and Associations Act 1976;
- A Company Limited By Guarantee formed under Corporations Law 1990;
- A Statutory Authority, with the exception of schools or educational facilities; or
- Local Government Authorities or Progress Associations, or groups established under Section 41 or 42 of the Local Government Act 1999 (council committees or subsidiaries).
