How It Works

However you do good in the world, there's something for you at TechSoup.

Whether you have resources to give or solutions you need to get, TechSoup facilitates the exchange. See how TechSoup can equip you with transformative technology products, knowledge, and services.

When you work at a nonprofit or civil society organization, your day-to-day efforts are focused on improving lives in your local community or around the world. So, how do you get the technology resources you need to accomplish your mission? Through our NGO Tech Marketplace!

When you sign up with us, we take care of the difficult work of confirming your eligibility on behalf of donors, and finding offers specific to your organization type and location — that's what we do. On your side, it's seamless! If you're interested, you can browse our articles and how-tos or watch one of our webinars to get more informed about the latest technology solutions and tips and tricks. If you're ready to take your skills to the next level, TechSoup Courses can give you the in-depth knowledge that you need. Or, just get right to it, and pick out the products that will make you better, stronger, faster, and powered up to transform the world.


As a grantmaker, you want to support organizations that are best able to respond to critical social issues. Rather than take up their time with cumbersome paperwork to help you help them, you can rely on our validation services to tell you whether organizations are legitimate NGOs, nonprofits, or charities in their home countries. And, if you're a U.S.-based grantmaker, NGOsource can streamline your international giving and help you effectively and efficiently support your grantees.


Socially responsible companies can team up with TechSoup and be stronger and more effective by working together. You can showcase your innovative technology solutions in our online catalog. Or, you can integrate our customizable validation solutions into your website to enrich your services with vetted data on 1.2 million organizations worldwide. Either way, you decide who can receive your support, TechSoup makes sure that the organizations are eligible, and your commitment to social responsibility is put into action.


Impassioned individuals: Community organizers, technology experts, consultants, volunteers, writers, and mentors from all walks of life have so much to contribute to the social sector.

You can amplify your efforts: Share your passion and commitment for technology and social-good issues by connecting in person at your local TechSoup Connect community event. You might even want to become an event host! If you're a technology expert, share your thoughts and knowledge on the TechSoup blog or in our forums.


TechSoup is a nonprofit, and we're raising $11.5 million over the next three years. For every $100 invested, we will distribute over $47,000 of additional resources to the nonprofit sector. Help support our vital work while earning interest on your investment.
