serve the needs of low-income, underserved populations and
create positive social change. We believe these organizations
could have even greater impact through the appropriate use of
technology. This requires assistance with obtaining, using, and
sustaining technology. In an innovative strategic partnership,
Microsoft, TechSoup Global, and others are developing a
global technology platform for the voluntary sector. As part of
their commitment to the this sector, corporations such as
Microsoft, Symantec, Adobe and Cisco use this platform to
provide donations, at scale, to worthy organizations around the
globe. Recipient organizations benefit from the consolidation of
many donation programs into one, and further benefit from the
wide range of training, collaboration, and support provided by
TechSoup Global and its partner organizations.
