EAL turns your excess or unwanted inventory, gently used equipment, and services into college tuition for needy students. If the donation is determined to be suitable for schools, the items are placed directly with colleges and universities. The colleges create and award scholarships to their students with demonstrated financial need. Inventory that is unsuitable for direct college placement is remarketed and the proceeds are used to fund our program. In cases with special donor restrictions, all donation restrictions are followed per the donor’s instruction.

EAL also accepts donations of cash, securities and other valuable assets.
