Vintage Computer Federation is a US 501(c)(3) non-profit. We keep our expenses low so that we can devote our resources to education and preservation activities; everybody involved is a volunteer. Here are some of the ways we raise funds:

  • Individual and corporate contributions (see below)
  • Prop rentals for commercials, television shows, and movies
  • Admission, small item sales (t-shirts, mousepads, etc), and consignment fees at our VCF events.

Don’t forget about matching grants! Many employers will match contributions to 501(c)(3) charities. Look us by name (Vintage Computer Federation Inc) or by employer identification number (EIN 47-4133714).

Amazon Smile

Amazon Smile is a program offered by Amazon that gives charities 0.5% of purchases made at the site. You get the same products and prices as on the regular Amazon site, but it helps to support Vintage Computer Federation.

Head over to and tell them you want to support Vintage Computer Federation Inc. After that, do your shopping there and Amazon will automatically make contributions to us – it is that easy! (If you forget and use the regular site you can switch to and your shopping cart will be there.)
