I cannot get the computer
The CS100 is designed to only work off the front wheel. if you are using a trainer where the rear wheel is spinning and the front wheel is stationary you will get no reliable reading. if this was the case on the old bike, you got lucky, the system is not designed to read that way. Too far a distance between sensor and computer.
If you are moving the front wheel, as on rollers, and you are not getting a signal than either the sensor and the magnet are not reading each other (too far away from each other, as an example) or the sensor has a dead battery, or you have the bike sensor turned off in your settings.

Where and when can I donate bikes to be given away
I have taken bikes to Thrift Shops (Value Village, etc.), and to recycling depots when they have provisions to donate them to various charities. In my area, migrant farm workers often get them. I think this info depends on your geographic area.

Rear deraileur won't shift to lower (more speed/revolution) cogs.
First, some terminology - the small cogs in the back are the higher gears. They will take you farther per pedal revolution, but not necessarily faster, as it's hard to pedal the high gears as fast.
As far as your problem there are multiple causes. The most common is friction in the shift cable. The rear derailleur shifts to the small cogs with spring pressure when you move the shift lever. It won't move well if the cable is binding. The second commone cause is the derailleur being bent inward from the bike falling on the right side. That will also cause the derailleur to move too far when shifting to the large cog in the rear - a very expensive problem if it goes into the spokes. The least common problem is misadjustment. ALL of the fixes must be done properly. The best option if available is to get help at a bike co-op or from a knowledgable friend. Otherwise take it to a shop for diagnosis and repair.
