LUG@UCLA makes very efficient use of your donations for two reasons:

  1. open source software runs well on old hardware since a) it can be maintained by the community, and b) it tends to be far more efficient than proprietary software, thus requiring less system resources.
  2. LUGs in general are interested in how things work, and will fix/salvage broken things.

Money donations

With your donation, we can buy new, shiny hardware to replace the old, dying hardware.
