TechSoup Global was founded in 1987 on the belief that technology is a powerful enabler for social change. Since then, we have assembled a worldwide network of individuals and organizations that share this conviction. TechSoup Global operates programs in Africa, the Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe, and the Middle East through a network of independent capacity-building NGOs. Through our websites, events, and community-building initiatives, TechSoup Global also helps companies and foundations optimize their philanthropic impact. With the support of leading technology companies, including Microsoft, Adobe, Cisco, and Symantec, TechSoup Global and our network have reached more than 197,400 organizations and enabled recipients in 52 countries to save more than US$3.4 billion in IT expenses.
