from our experience, the best electronic format for scanned documents is .PDF format. There are .PDF viewers available for all kinds of computers (Macs, Windows, Linux etc). Also, it handles graphics, photos and text equally well... though, the files can get pretty large.

You might be able to cut the file size if you can put the documents though Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software... this converts the text in the document to computer text... otherwise, scanned documents are typically saved as Pictures which greatly increases their file size.

However you might save them, it would be a great benefit to everyone, so, thanks for stepping up!
