PHOENIX  and  ALEXANDRIA, Va.,  April 15, 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- University of

Through Good360's nation-spanning network of nonprofit organizations and online
donation marketplace, the more than 100  University of Phoenix  campuses and
offices across the country can now quickly connect with local organizations to
provide them with refurbished computers and other technologies. This new
relationship has already helped to provide organizations in  Phoenix  with 145
computers to help them continue their commitments to serving their communities.
The University will now work exclusively through Good360 to donate its
technologies.

"For 30 years, Good360 has helped fulfill the needs of nonprofits with corporate
product donations," said  Cindy Hallberlin, Good360 president and CEO. "We are
proud to work with  University of Phoenix  as they continue to create positive
educational and sustainability outcomes in our communities by helping them to
see the life of their technologies extended with continued use and safe
disposal."  

This new relationship also provides the opportunity to greatly reduce the
environmental impact of disposing of technologies that can no longer be used. As
part of their agreement with Good360, when the technologies are no longer
needed, each nonprofit organization in the network must dispose of them in a way
that is compliant with all regulations and that is safest for the environment.  


"At the core of our business is a mission to ensure that all Americans not only
have access to a quality higher education, but also have access to safe, healthy
environments where they can continue to learn, explore and grow both personally
and professionally," said  Pat Gottfried, vice president of Corporate Social
Responsibility for Apollo Group, parent company of  University of Phoenix. "We
are proud of this new relationship with Good360 for both the impact it will have
on deserving organizations in need of technology, and in helping to keep our
environment safe and clean."
