Make a meaningful impact in your community by hosting a PHONE IT FORWARD Charity Campaign
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 that simple acts of kindness 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) as a charitable event that allows individuals, businesses, and organizations the opportunity to 'pay it forward' by donating unused electronic devices to help vulnerable persons in their community.
We guarantee complete data erasure of all electronic devices according to the DOD NIST 800-88 Rev. 1 guidelines. Items that are damaged or unusable are securely disposed of through an ISO 14001 R2 certified recycler.
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 receipts!
866-290-7864 or email for further assistance.
Use these 8.5x11 posters to promote your "Phone it Forward" campaign. Post it on information boards, breakrooms, anywhere employees congregate, or in convenient locations within your community.
To request custom posters that include your company colors, logo, and other local partnerships please send an email to email@example.com
All donations to the 911 Cell Phone Bank are tax-deductible. Consult your tax professional for advice or assistance.

The 911 Cell Phone Bank (911CPB) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that collects old, unused, lost, or discarded cell phones and other personal electronic devices, refurbishes them, and distributes them to law enforcement and victim agencies to assist individuals who might not otherwise have access to emergency communication services. The concept is simple: by donating unused cell phones and other electronic devices, you contribute to the safety and well-being of vulnerable persons in your community.
