      About TechSoup Global:

      TechSoup Global is a nonprofit organization that has been successful in
      creating a suite of high impact services that facilitate corporate
      philanthropy and benefit community service organizations in a
      financially sustainable model. For more than two decades, our mission
      has been to work toward the day when every community service
      organization on the planet has access to the technology resources and
      information they need to achieve their own missions. Founded in 1987,
      we currently have more than 170 staff members and an annual budget of
      about $23 million. TechSoup Global helps other nonprofits better serve
      their missions by acquiring and using technology, implementing web and
      social networking, and receiving grant funding and product donations.

      Working with capacity-building partners across the world, TechSoup
      Global is actively expanding our program outside the US. We establish
      partnerships with in-country NGOs to implement our highly effective
      product donation program, while adapting to local business practices,
      laws, and cultural imperatives. In the process, we're building a global
      network of partners all focused on empowering NGOs through the effective
      use of technology. We're in 22 countries to date and adding more each

      Through our TechSoup Stock website, nonprofits find a broad range of
      software donated by leading tech companies such as Microsoft, Cisco,
      Symantec, Intuit, and Adobe, along with content and community resources
      tailored specifically for a nonprofit audience. To date we have enabled
      over $1 billion in technology donations world wide.

      Based upon the strength of our global network, our expertise in building
      scalable web systems, our history of working both with donors and with
      recipient NGOs, and our experience building one of the fastest growing
      sustainable social enterprises, TechSoup Global was recently selected to
      build a new service for international philanthropy. Backed by major
      foundations and key philanthropy sector partners, this new service will
      create a global database of nonprofits and NGOs, making it easier and
      less costly for international grantmakers to provide cash grants to
      social benefit organizations in countries outside the U.S.

      TechSoup Global is dedicated to creating and supporting an environment
      of openness, trust, and fun where people's differences are valued and
      respected, and where people of diverse backgrounds participate fully in
      our organization. We believe that the diverse cultures and perspectives
      of our staff will help us better serve our clients. TechSoup Global is
      an equal opportunity agency and will not allow discrimination based upon
      age, ethnicity, gender, national origin, disability, race, size,
      religion, sexual orientation or socioeconomic background.
