Summer 2016 Highlights

200 Laptops Donated in 45 Days! 
Thanks to our generous donors, the Laptops for KidZ project received over 200 donated laptops in a 45 day period, starting in early July.  A combination of corporate, individual and small business donors made donations ranging from 3 laptops to 132 laptops.

 MAF’s team of volunteers has already refurbished and placed 122 of the laptops as of August 22, 2016.

Laptops for Seniors Field Test
The Masonic Angel Foundation is field testing a “Laptops for Seniors” project that will partner with area Senior Centers and Councils on Aging to place refurbished laptops with senior citizens who need computer access but cannot afford to obtain their own machine.  The project will also encompass seniors whose computer has broken and are not able to afford to replace it.  Senior Center staff will determine placements and will preserve the confidentiality of recipients. 

Laptops for Seniors is being field tested in Eastham, Dennis and Chatham, Massachusetts in partnership with Senior Centers in the respective communities.   

Many seniors who live in FHA subsidized housing may quality for Comcast’s Internet Essentials $9.95/month broadband access program. 

More information about Laptops for Seniors will be forthcoming at the conclusion of the field test.





Laptops refurbished by the Laptops for KidZ Project will be delivered to our local school partners for placement with children in need, as deemed appropriate by the school professionals that work with the local Masonic Angel Fund chapter.

Our laptops stay in the United States!

When a laptop is donated in a community where there is a MAF chapter, every effort will be made to place the refurbished computer with a child in that community or as close to there as possible.

Laptops donated by national corporations and finance companies will be distributed to schools served by Masonic Angel Fund chapters around the country.

All refurbished laptops are loaded with a Microsoft Windows operating system provided to us through the Community Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher program.  All operating system software is configured in English.  Recipients must be legal residents of the United States.

If you are a parent seeking a laptop for your child please do not contact us.  It is a charter requirement that we avoid direct contact with recipients of MAF assistance.  We work only through partner schools and selected social service groups.
