TechSoup's mission is working toward a time when every nonprofit
and NGO on the planet has the technology resources and knowledge they
need to operate at their full potential.
Headquartered in San Francisco, with offices in Warsaw, Poland and London, United Kingdom, TechSoup is the largest not-for-profit provider of technology assistance services to nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and libraries worldwide. Around 254,000 unique, monthly visitors from 190 countries visit the Techsoup internet sites for technology information, training, and support. These users are able to read articles and other educational content plus participate in webinars, forums, and both online and in-person community events in order to collaborate, share best practices, make good technology decisions, and maximize their impact.
Since 2001, when the technology product donation service began, Techsoup has provided more than 183 000 organisations with computer software, hardware, application services and complementary content and community services. These users are able to read articles and other educational content plus participate in webinars, forums, and both online and in-person community events in order to collaborate, share best practices, make good technology decisions and maximize their impact. Techsoup's partnerships with 52 best-of-breed technology companies such as Microsoft, Bitdefender, Tableau, Cisco, and Adobe have enabled it to build a best-in-class social enterprise that, for a small administrative fee, verifies NGOs and matches them to the donated technology products they need.
Through this unique model, more than 9.7 million products and services have been put in the hands of NGOs, resulting in potential savings of US$3 billion to the civil society sector and freeing precious financial resources.
