Signing up to become a TechSoup member is the first step toward getting product donations and participating in community discussions. Creating a TechSoup account is simple. Just select Sign Up for TechSoup from the Joining TechSoup dropdown menu, and provide the basics:
Once you've signed up, you can register your organization with TechSoup or associate to a previously registered organization and request donated and discounted products. And remember to sign up for our newsletters to stay updated on the latest product donations and resources.
Your organization’s eligibility depends on a few factors, including your organization type and budget. To find out which product donation programs your nonprofit or library is likely eligible for, check your program eligibility before you register your organization. To learn about other factors that might affect your organization's eligibility, review TechSoup’s eligibility requirements and donor partner restrictions.
First things first: let’s see if your organization is already registered with TechSoup. Make sure you’re logged in, then search by employer identification number (EIN) for nonprofits, or FSCS ID for libraries. If your organization is already in our database, you can become an authorized agent by associating with your organization. If your organization isn’t in our database, register it.
Associate with an Already Registered Organization: If your organization is already registered with TechSoup, you may then become an authorized agent. This lets you represent your organization and request donations on its behalf. In order to become an authorized agent, you’ll need your organization’s association code. This code is used to link individual TechSoup member accounts to an organization. If you don't know the association code, here are three ways to find it:
Register Your Organization: It's not difficult to register an organization. Just make sure you have the following information before you start:
Qualify Your Organization: You must be qualified to receive product donations. After you've registered your organization, you'll submit a completed Qualification Checklist (PDF 51 KB) and other documents to verify your tax exempt status and other information. Send documents by fax: (415) 633-9444; email: email@example.com; or postal mail: TechSoup Client Services, 435 Brannan Street, Suite 100, San Francisco, CA 94107.
After registering your organization, request a product donation

Second, TechSoup saves us money by enabling us to be cutting edge with our software applications. Our employees are more efficient with current release software.
