ETC ComputerLand’s GIFT project is our way of giving back to our community. GIFT is a quarterly technology giveaway that benefits local charitable and service organizations that are not-for-profit, tax-exempt agencies.
These organizations make an impact on economic development, education, health, and so much more in our area. Their work continues despite everyday challenges they so often face.
GIFT is ETC ComputerLand’s way of acknowledging our individual responsibility to the ever-expanding technology needs of our community and our dedication to corporate philanthropy.
ETC ComputerLand does not solicit any special funding or donations to provide this quarterly giveaway. GIFT is 100% exclusively funded by ETC ComputerLand.
Not-for-profit agencies that are tax-exempt under IRS 501(c)(3) and in good standing with the state of Illinois and Missouri can win. The organizations’ principal offices must be within 75 miles of Quincy, Illinois or Waterloo, Illinois to be eligible. Any person may register an organization. No purchase is necessary to participate in the GIFT project. An organization may only receive one entry per quarter, and ETC ComputerLand will eliminate duplicate entries. Any organization having won in the last twelve months is not eligible.
ETC ComputerLand holds GIFT drawings quarterly on the last Friday of each calendar quarter. In the case of Friday being a holiday, the drawing will be held the previous day. All entries are due by midnight of the day prior to the drawing. ETC ComputerLand will draw an entrant at random and inform the winner via e-mail or telephone. If the GIFT winner does not claim the award within seven days, a new name will be drawn until the award is claimed.
The GIFT winner will receive a Hewlett-Packard desktop computer and monitor or $500 of technology or web services. In the Waterloo, Illinois area the winner will receive a computer and monitor or web services only.
