"Phone It Forward" and help your team members and local community recycle their used electronics.


The simple act of donating cell phones and other electronic devices that are no longer being used or that have been left behind in lost-and-found shows the world that simple acts of charity can alleviate the effects of domestic violence, human trafficking, and elder abuse.

The "PHONE IT FORWARD" campaign was created by the 911 Cell Phone Bank (911CPB) (501c3) as a charitable event that allows individuals, businesses, and organizations the opportunity to 'pay it forward' by donating unused electronic devices to help victims in their community. 

The 911CPB guarantees secure data erasure and recycling of donated devices. Donated cell phones are repurposed as emergency 911 devices to help vulnerable victims in need. Donations help keep our landfills free of e-waste. We accept new, used, older, and broken devices.

The entire process is simple and 100% free – we even provide you with marketing posters*, shipping labels, and tax-deductible donation forms!

Email or call 866-290-7864 to get started with your campaign today.

*Customized posters with your company or organization logo are available upon request. Email for more information.
