TT-Exchange provide free/low-cost software to UK charities. Partners include Microsoft, Adobe, and many others.
There are some incredible savings, and all UK charities should consider signing up!
For example, at the time of writing (Spring 2014) Microsoft Windows 8.1 is only £5, and MS Office 2013 is only £20.
As long as you are already registered as a UK charity and meet their eligibility criteria, then the process is very quick and simple. Just fill in a form and submit it, and hopefully you’ll receive a confirmation email almost immediately.
Formerly CTXchange, the programme is brought to you by Technology Trust in partnership with the not-for-profit technology capacity building organisation TechSoup.
Through this programme, eligible UK-based charities are able to request donated technology products from Partners such as Microsoft, Symantec and Cisco. The products include operating system software and server software, security software and hardware products such as switches, routers, wireless equipment and firewalls.
Technology Trust and TechSoup are actively working to further expand the programme to include donations from other leading corporate technology donors.
Charities are required to pay an Administrative Fee per product to cover the costs of delivering the programme. Whilst the administrative fees vary, charities will still make savings of between 92-96% on typical retail prices.
Charities have access to a wide array of educational resources through the tt-exchange Programme which helps them best choose, implement, and use the available technology.
