    Ideally run dariks boot and nuke and then reinstall the os.
    The charity/recycler i worked for did it for you so i would ask who you are donating to whether they do this.

    When you say functional - do you mean retain the data they contain?
    I would probably do as trott3r said - completely wipe the disks and then reinstall.
