Technology Donation Program at TechSoup Global

Telecentre-Europe has partnered with TechSoup Global to connect telecentre organizations in European countries with technology product donations, and with the free learning resources they need to make informed decisions and operate at their full potential.

Telecentre organizations are working hard to make a positive impact on their community, and technology can help extend their reach. But, when most of an organization’s funding goes toward accomplishing its mission, there's not always enough left over for technology needs. That's where TechSoup Global and its network of partner NGOs come in.

Supporting nonprofits with their technology needs

Once registered and qualified with a local donation program, an organization can access donated and discounted products and services, including software from partners like Microsoft, Symantec, Cisco, and SAP. 

Since 2001, TechSoup Global donation programs have helped save 183,000+ organizations around the world more than $3.1 billion in IT expenses. Check out TechSoup Global’s Local Impact Map to learn more about the NGOs that received technology donations. Read about the great work they are doing within their communities across Europe and the rest of the world.

2. Register your organisation.

3. Submit qualification documents.

4. Request donated products!

Please note: TechSoup Global donation programs are not available in all countries. Eligibility varies: Our product donor partners decide which types of organizations align with their donation philosophy. Your organization's location, annual operating budget, and its primary mission are factors in determining eligibility. An administrative fee is charged for each donation. The fees vary depending on the products and represents a small percentage of the commercial value of the donation. Fees help offset the costs to administer the donation program.

TechSoup Global was founded in 1987 on the belief that technology is a powerful enabler for social change. Since then, it has assembled a trusted worldwide network of individuals, NGOs, foundations, and corporate partners, who share this conviction. TechSoup Global’s NGO partners are connected through a common online platform. It enables technology donations and support, which connects and builds the capacity of social benefit organizations and the communities that rely on them. Each NGO partner offers a localized version of TechSoup Global’s technology assistance, learning resources, data programs, and community-driven innovation that deepen benefits for NGOs around the world.

This is a program well worth exploring, both for the product donations possible AND for the information about implementing technology for social impact.  If your country is not listed above, check out for information on how to access software donations from Microsoft.
