"The World Bank was one of the first organizations to use TechSoup validation, and we've been a proud supporter ever since. The team is great to work with, and we tripled the matching gift program in our regional offices in two years."
"One key benefit for us for being part of the TechSoup network has been the expertise. We are working with some incredibly talented people who are providing us with on the ground insights on what's working in specific countries and regions, and that's helping us make informed decisions around the products that we're building and the tools that we're shaping."
"The TechSoup network is incredible because there's so much dispersed knowledge about nonprofits in every country all over the world, and for us to be able to become experts in that way is impossible. The local expertise of the network is incredible."
