A while back, a friend from Montreal told me about a website that provides technology (hardware, software, etc..) at seriously low cost. TechSoup Stock brings technology donations to nonprofits.
From what I understand, Major corporations donate their products for qualifying nonprofits (i.e. the Church) and they only pay an admin fee for the product.
An example is Adobe’s Creative Suite 5 – Design Premium (CS5)
- Adobe.com: US$1,899
- Techsoup.org: US$160 (which is basically an admin fee)
My church is currently in the process of registering. I love it when I see this kind of stuff happening in the “business” world!
Is your nonprofit/church already on board with TechSoup? If so, I’d love to hear how it has blessed what you do.
