Mission & History
FreeGeek Chicago is a not-for-profit community organization that sale and recycle desktop and laptop computers and parts.
FreeGeek Chicago was founded in August 2005 as a collaboration of NPOTechs and Logan Square CTC to recycle computer technology. FreeGeek Chicago does most of this work with volunteers, who disassemble and test the components, which are either recycled as electronic scrap or reused in refurbished systems.
We are proud to be an affiliate of FreeGeek Portland, the founding FreeGeek.
FreeGeek Chicago is a Not-For-Profit Corporation, incorporated on December 21, 2007 in the State of Illinois. FreeGeek Chicago has received 501(c)(3) tax exempt status as a public charity from the United States Internal Revenue Service.
