SCALING IMPACT

TechSoup collaborates with corporations locally, regionally, and globally to create, curate, and scale relevant projects and solutions across many communities in Europe and beyond. We have the local connections, relevant expertise, and large capacity to quickly develop meaningful and far-reaching CSR projects that can be scaled not just in one country, but across the region or the globe.

Learn how corporations are improving their communities through their CSR partnerships with TechSoup Europe. If you are interested in creating and connecting relevant and scalable solutions, contact TechSoup Europe. Together we can scale your social impact! Check a few of our collaborations:

Meet and Code

As part of EU Code Week, since 2017 SAP and TechSoup Europe cooperate to bridge the digital divide across Europe by educating and inspiring the next generation to explore digital technologies.  This is done by supporting local organisations across Europe to organize hackathons, programming workshops, lectures, film events, competitions, coding nights, robotics classes, and more, catered towards youth. The results of Meet and Code are impressive: more than 200,000 young people from 35 countries participating in more than 5,700 events!

OPENING OPPORTUNITIES

Opening Opportunities is an award-winning national mentoring programme for Romanian high school students with a focus on STEM, computer science, and careers in tech. Asociatia Techsoup Romania matches corporate employee volunteers from well-known companies such as Microsoft with a group of high school students in remote areas of the country where opportunities for careers in tech are extremely limited. The mentors lead the teams of youth through a full life cycle of product development, expose them to different careers in technology, and support the development of their digital skills.

SCALE YOUR IMPACT

PHILANTHROPY SOLUTIONS

Every day, people within Europe rely on TechSoup Europe for the information they need to make smart decisions about technology at their organisations.

Organisations often first get to know TechSoup Europe through our product donation program, which provides eligible organisations with donated and discounted software, hardware, services, and training. In collaboration with the TechSoup Europe network, these trusted partners give organisations worldwide access to the solutions they need on a local platform. Each region’s catalog is unique and offers different products with a mix of global and local donors, from companies like Microsoft, Bitdefender, Adobe, and Autodesk.

If your company produces technology solutions ranging from hardware to software, cloud-based resources to training, TechSoup wants to talk to you! We’d like to invite you to become one of our donor partners who help social benefit organisations around the world achieve more with their limited budgets. We’re grateful for the substantial technology contributions of all our donor partners.

BECOME A DONOR PARTNER

VALIDATION SERVICES

Grantmakers, governments, companies, and others often need to verify that an organisation is eligible for support before offering in-kind gifts, employee giving, charity sales, or cash grants. TechSoup Europe, as part of the TechSoup Global Network, has the expertise and rigorous systems for providing trusted information on validated organisations and helping organisations connect to giving resources.

Globally, we apply know-how that spans more than 1 million organizations in 236 countries and territories to meet a spectrum of needs from relatively simple to reliable for tax purposes. And we offer local outreach and support as well as opportunities for peer networking and access to capacity-building resources.

We offer validation services in a variety of formats to make giving easy. When a donor needs to determine if an NGO, nonprofit, or charity in its home country is legitimate and to integrate with the data and systems that support its giving programs, we can help. Services include “white label” front-end applications and APIs or collaborative applications like Volunteer Connection. Many of the largest philanthropic and socially responsible corporations and a number of multinationals and institutions rely on us to support validation worldwide.
