Their Mission Statement

TechSoup Global, founded in 1987 as The CompuMentor Project, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides technology assistance to other nonprofit organizations in the United States and in 34 countries. Based in San Francisco, TechSoup Global offers a wide range of programs and services that help nonprofits and libraries use technology to achieve their missions. TechSoup Global runs TechSoua technology website for the nonprofit sector and TechSoua technology product philanthropy service for nonprofits. TechSoup Global's founding organization CompuMentor was created in 1987 when Daniel Ben-Horin (today a Co-CEO of TechSoup Global) was inspired by the participants on The WELL, one of the very first online communities, to create a program whereby those with technology skills (“mentors”) volunteered on often intensive projects to assist nonprofit organizations gain a foothold with new information technologies. In 2008, CompuMentor formally announced that it had changed its name to TechSoup Global to reflect the organization's evolution to a group which serves nonprofit institutions and NGOs around the world. As of October, 2010,  TechSoup Global is the largest not-for-profit provider of technology assistance services to nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), libraries, and other civil society organizations (CSOs) worldwide. More than 352,000 unique, monthly visitors from 190 countries visit the TechSoup Global internet sites for technology information, training, and support. These users are able to read articles and other educational content plus participate in webinars, forums, and both online and in-person community events in order to collaborate, share best practices, make good technology decisions and maximize their impact. PROGRAMS TechSouis a web site serving nonprofits that provides training webinars, community forums and other resources about the use of technology in nonprofit organizations and public libraries. TechSouoriginally known as DiscounTech and later as TechSoup Stock, is a technology product philanthropy service for nonprofits which was launched in January 2002. It is the exclusive U.S. distributor of Microsoft product donations, and helps to connect nonprofits and libraries to over 451 different product donations from 44 donating partners (including Cisco, Symantec, Sun and Adobe). These partnerships have enabled it to build a social enterprise that, for a small administrative fee, verifies CSOs and matches them to the donated technology products they need. GreenTech and the Refurbished Computer Initiative GreenTech and the Refurbished Computer Initiative are programs in which refurbished corporate IT equipment is made available at low cost to nonprofits and low-income families. (In 2007, the initiative was awarded a $500,000, two-year grant by the California Emerging Technology Fund, building on a 2004 grant by The Full Circle Fund). Nonprofit Commons in Second Life TechSoup Global’s efforts in Second Life began in 2005 with the founding of the Nonprofit Commons in Second Life and today (October 2010) include four virtual locations and membership spanning 400 organizations in 62 countries. (TechSoup Global’s Online Community Manager was lampooned by Jon Stewart on The Daily Show after her testimony before a U.S. Congressional Subcommittee on Commerce and the Internet in 2008.) TechSoup Global Network The TechSoup Global Network is a program which helps connect nonprofits from outside the U.S. to donations of software, technology products, and services. Fundacja TechSoup is the first separately incorporated “regional hub” established by TechSoup Global. It employs a staff of six in Warsaw, Poland, and supports activities in 16 European countries (as well as playing a key role in supporting the global partner network overall). Through 32 TechSoup Global Network Partner NGOs and regional affiliates, the TechSoup technology donation program is now (October 2010) available to community-based organizations in a total of 33 countries in addition to the United States, including: Australia, Belgium, Botswana, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, Croatia, Czech Republic, Egypt, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Luxembourg, Macau, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom. GuideStar International In 2010, TechSoup Global and GuideStar International, a U.K.-registered charity that promotes transparency and civil society organization reporting, combined operations in order to strengthen their respective capacity-building programs for civil society. The two organizations share a mission to benefit global civil society through the provision of technology, information, and resources. NGOsource NGOsource, a project of the Council on Foundations and TechSoup Global, is an equivalency determination information repository service to help U.S. grantmakers streamline their international grantmaking procedures. NGOsource was conceived by grantmakers as a quick, reliable, affordable, and easy-to-use web-based service to help U.S. grantmakers evaluate whether an NGO outside of the U.S. is the equivalent of a U.S. public charity. NGOsource is expected to dramatically improve the efficiency of international grantmaking and inspire a significant increase in cross-border philanthropy. NetSquared NetSquared is an initiative which aids individuals and communities in using web-based tools, and gives financial support for social action projects. It was launched in 2005 and now includes active Net Squared Local monthly meetups in 70 cities in 23 countries. Impact From January 2002 when the technology product donation service began through October 2010, TechSoup Global has provided more than 127,000 organizations with computer software, hardware, application services and complementary content and community services. Products and services valued at more than US$2 billion have been put in the hands of CSOs (as of October 2010), resulting in great savings to the civil society sector and freeing precious financial resources. In FY2010, TechSoup distributed $312 million worth of product donations to organizations in 33 countries (including the U.S.), saving the nonprofit sector $296 million. The TechSou000 unique visitors per month from 190 countries.
