How to Donate Your Old Cell Phones and Do Good

Community Manager

Donate your cell phone.jpeg

At Sprint, we believe in doing good, lending a hand, and making life better for others. As part of that mission, Sprint and the Sprint Foundation developed the 1Million Project, which strives to provide free mobile devices and free high-speed wireless internet connectivity to 1 million low-income, U.S. high school students who don't have a reliable way to connect to the internet at home.


It's a small but meaningful step that can help eliminate the "homework gap' that puts low-income students at a disadvantage because they don’t have a reliable way to go online at home, which is often necessary for completing homework, communicating with teachers, or applying scholarships, college, and even jobs.


To get involved in the 1Million Project, Sprint and other wireless customers can donate old cell phones, tablets, and mobile hotspots, which we will resell or recycle to support the program. All makes and models of devices can be donated – regardless of your service provider or the condition of the device.


In order to make it easier to donate cell phones to the project, we offer a free shipping label. However, we also understand that you may not have an old cell phone to donate, which is why we also offer a quick and easy way to donate money directly to the 1Million Project. All you need to do is visit our donation page and in a few short minutes you can help make a difference to someone in need.


Note: Device donations are not tax deductible. Net proceeds from reselling/recycling donated devices, or $1 per device, whichever is greater, will be donated to the program.
