Techsoup Donation Program

Broadband for Social Good

Who it helps:
501(c)(3) nonprofits, schools, and libraries

 

How it helps:
Through our $10/month, unlimited Internet service and 4G device donation program through TechSoup, nonprofits can significantly lower their connectivity costs. It’s a great opportunity for nonprofits who:

  • Lack traditional Internet access, or suffer from slow speeds/bandwidth constraints
  • Need a low-cost backup Internet source
  • Want to provide field-based staff with mobile Internet access

What you get:
Qualified organizations can get 11-26 donated 4G devices per year. We offer tiered donation bundles to help you get the number of devices you need to expand access without breaking your budget.
