Apple Computer does make corporate donations, mainly to educational
programs, through the Worldwide Corporate Affairs and Worldwide
Community Affairs departments. I don't know who is currently in charge
of those departments, however. They also support programs in which
Apple employees act as teachers and mentors in local schools.

"Apple Gives Grants To  Nonprofit Groups
Under the Community Affairs program, Apple Corporate Grants awards
computer systems to nonprofit social service and arts groups. Awards
are made in five categories: the arts, the disabled, citizen action,
research and development, and innovation challenge (innovative uses of
computers in the nonprofit sector). Groups are working in such areas
as housing, substance abuse, the needs of the elderly, and refugeeism.
Guidelines require, among other things, that groups be classified as
501(c)3 by the IRS, have full-time paid staff, maintain regular office
hours, and have annual budgets of less than $500,000.
The program emphasizes the awarding of computer systems to networks of
groups that are working on similar problems. The intention is that
networking via computer will enable groups to share resources and
information, to collaborate on major projects, and to access
centralized sources of information.
Community Affairs grantees are located throughout the United States. 
The Cupertino office can provide interested parties with information
about groups in their geographic area or area of social service.
Deadlines for submitting proposals are November 15 and April 15. For
complete guidelines and application forms, contact Apple Corporate
Grants, 20525 Mariani Avenue M/S 5-B, Cupertino, CA 95014."
