Free Technology Resources for Nonprofits

TechSoup.org offers nonprofits a one-stop resource for technology needs by providing free information, resources, and support. In addition to online information and resources, the organization offers a product philanthropy service called TechSoup Stock where nonprofits can access donated and discounted technology products provided by corporate and nonprofit technology partners.

We believe that technology can enhance nonprofit work, making us more efficient and better able to serve our communities. We never lose sight of that goal.

TechSoup provides instructional articles and worksheets for nonprofit staff members who utilize information technologies, as well as technology planning information for executives and other decision makers. Introductory articles and message board support are aimed at those who do not have much experience using technology, but we also provide more advanced information.

TechSoup Global is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working towards the day when every nonprofit, library, and social benefit organization on the planet has the technology knowledge and resources they need to operate at their full potential.

A new summer 2010 digital catalog integrates product discounts and donations with content from the website and is fully searchable. Info is divided into different topics, from productivity to fundraising to legal   issues and advocacy. It looks like it could be very useful, and I wanted to  pass
it on.

There are weekly webinars on topics like different software options and social media marketing – they are free and the recordings and presentations are archived.
