Tech For Troops’ Veteran Improvement Program (VIP) supplies qualifying Veterans and Veteran Assistance Organizations with refurbished computers at low cost. Each computer has a fresh install of the operating system and is excellent for typical office tasks such as word processing and browsing the web.

Tech For Troops gifts computers to:

1. Veterans, National Guard, and active duty transitioning in need.

2. Non-profits with a mission to help Veterans such as Veterans training centers, counseling centers, Veterans housing organizations, etc.


Please complete this online application to request a computer. Scholarships are sometimes provided toward the purchase of devices from Tech For Troops to reduce the overall cost. If you are in need of assistance to complete the application, please contact your local Veteran Service Organization of choice or non-profit partner.


Richmond area recipients must attend a Veteran Improvement Basic Computer Literacy Training class prior to receiving the gift of technology. If you are Computer Literate, we will ask you to “test” out to show your competency. If outside of Richmond, we can arrange to have your equipment shipped (PO boxes not accepted). Applying for a scholarship may help reduce the cost of the equipment being shipped.

Some of the organizations that have received computers from
Tech For Troops are:

  • Veterans’ Employment Program
  • DLW Veterans Outreach and Training Center
  • American Legion Posts across the US
  • Wounded Warrior Project
  • VFW across the US
