TechSoup offers a variety of resources for religious nonprofits. This article will provide an overview of the TechSoup product donations and learning resources that can help your religious nonprofit get the most out of its technology.
TechSoup is probably best known for distributing donated and discounted software and technology products to eligible nonprofit organizations. Each of TechSoup's product programs has specific eligibility guidelines set by the donor, and religious organizations are eligible for many of these programs, including these three major ones.
You can also take our Eligibility Check to see which software and hardware donations your organization may be eligible for. The Eligibility Requirements and Donor Partner Restrictions page provides further details on each program's requirements and restrictions.
All of TechSoup's learning resources are free to any organization, including religious organizations, regardless of organization type. They include
The TechSoup forums are a great place to ask (and answer) technology questions. There are more than 20 forums, on topics like Security and Tech Planning and Policies.
Nonprofits face many of the same technology challenges, like having limited time, budgets, and resources to support and maintain their technology. So if you're facing a technology problem, the odds are good that another organization might have the same question or know of a great solution. Each forum is moderated by a friendly volunteer host and TechSoup staff, and your questions are always welcome.
You can also search the forums to see if a topic you're interested in has already been addressed.
