    Apologies if this has been asked before...

    I have a late-1980s/early-1990s era Dacor BCD that I'd like to donate if some organization can get value from it. If you know of any such organizations, can you please let me know? Thank you.

    Try Diveheart. They have their own section on one of the forums.

    Nothing personal but since Dacor has been out of business for about a decade - are you doing them a favor or saddling them with a useless problem if they need parts?

    Other than the inflator which is probably generic.

    Occasionally you see old gear at Goodwill so someone must be buying it. They give tax credits.

    Thank you both. And, of course, I wouldn't ever take any good faith suggestions personally!

    My personal experience in donating to them included some non-functioning and dated items. You might PM them and see, as I did prior to my donation.
