Microsoft is a key sponsor and lead product donor on TechSoup, as well as an advocate and funder for the expansion of the TechSoup Global platform. Software donations are a key part of the company’s global citizenship commitment to bring the benefits of relevant, accessible and affordable technology to those who don’t currently have it. Microsoft believes NGOs deserve access to the best technology tools to do their important work in their communities, and donates its software in support of their goals.



Corporate responsibility is central to Cisco Systems’ culture and history. Cisco established its Product Donation Program in 1998, distributing new and refurbished networking equipment, including switches, routers, and fi rewalls, to nonprofits doing important work in its focus areas. One of the cornerstones of the optimized program is TechSoup, which serves as the virtual donation platform for Cisco’s new program. Thanks to this partnership with TechSoup Stock, thousands of nonprofits have been able to improve their service to their communities.

Rockefeller Brothers Fund


Founded in 1940, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund advances social change that contributes to a more just, sustainable, and peaceful world.  The RBF's grantmaking is organized around three themes:  Democratic Practice, Sustainable Development, and Peace and Security.  Though the Fund pursues its three program interests in a variety of geographic contexts, it has identified several specific locations on which to concentrate cross-programmatic attention.  The Fund refers to these as "RBF pivotal places": subnational areas, nation-states, or cross-border regions that have special importance with regard to the Fund's substantive concerns and whose future will have disproportionate significance for the future of a surrounding region, an ecosystem, or the world.  The Fund currently works in three pivotal places:  New York City, Western Balkans, and Southern China.
