Donating previous versions of software to schools is a valid option as it
provides resources to otherwise "out of luck" student, especially at the
middle and elementary levels. Some software mfgs provide a special license
transfer for the previous version to schools. You should contact the mfg
and ask if they have such a policy and any appropriate paperwork.

Also, you can take a tax deduction for the charitable contribution.
