Relevant Impact at Scale
Founded to connect technical mentors with community activists in the San Francisco Bay Area, TechSoup's renowned collaboration approach and award-winning, innovative social enterprise business model has enabled a cooperative platform at scale. More than 90 corporate donors and providers of software, hardware, and services have chosen the TechSoup platform and model to create and grow impactful in-kind donation programs wrapped in nonprofit education and support. More than 851,000 nonprofits in 236 countries and territories have benefited from TechSoup and recognize TechSoup as their unique resource partner.
TechSoup's cooperative models, its international network of nonprofit partners, and its use of technology and data to drive sector value have given it a unique leadership position. TechSoup continuously innovates programs and experiments with the community to find ways to meet new needs and create value. In addition to its direct program, its many "spin in" and "spin out" services like NetSquared, NGOsource, and Caravan Studios have leveraged TechSoup to build adjacent collaborations.
TechSoup and its partners have collectively grown the tech resources devoted to expanding the capacity of the global social sector. They have increased this capacity more than 10- to 30-fold since 2001, dramatically strengthening programs and impact for beneficiaries in the process.
A One-of-a-Kind Civil Society Network

This network is both operational and strategic. Its nonprofit, social enterprise activities operate like an e-commerce distribution service with global reach. These activities are connected by a common data-driven platform, shared business process, and mutual values, localized to deepen impact. This network also is made up of foundational, visionary leaders in the worldwide nonprofit sector who share a mission to wisely steward shared resources and make it easier for givers and getters to connect and have collective impact grow in the process.
