Berkeley High School Photography Program

Donate 35mm cameras

A Big Thank you from Berkeley High!

Wow you guys are great!
Since 2008 we've collected almost 800 donated 35mm cameras to Berkeley High!  Cameras have arrived from all over the US and a few from other countries too. Thank you!

Tax Donation Receipts
For a tax donation receipt please send an email directly to with a list of the items you donated.

Send a new battery with your camera, if you can!
Before sending your donation please check the battery in your camera. If it is old and dead please remove it so it cannot damage the camera. If you have a new working battery for the camera please include it in your donation. I recently learned that the photography teachers at Berkeley High are buying camera batteries out-of-pocket (that is, with their own funds) for donated cameras. Battery donations are always appreciated!

Donate Digital Cameras Too!

We're also collect donations of used digital cameras for local community college students!

Students at the Photo Department of Laney College in Oakland would love to put your donated digital SLR camera to good use. Since 2013, instructors have been lending donated digital cameras to appreciative community college students.


Please bring or ship your digital or 35mm camera donation to us at Photolab at our address below. Donations of 35mm film cameras are also accepted directly to Berkeley High School.

Thank you!
