TechSoup provides donated and deeply discounted products and services to nonprofits and libraries. Some of our donor partners make their product donations available to organizations with religious missions . And, if your church or faith-based organization has a primary mission that is nonreligious, you might be able to register with an organization type that allows you to be eligible for even more of our donation programs.
This free webinar is designed especially for churches and faith-based organizations interested in learning more about the TechSoup donation program so they can get the most value from TechSoup.org.

I recently connected with Sachin Malhan, CEO and co-founder of inclusive planet, an online platform that enables people with print impairments to find each other, connect, interact, build communities, and share accessible content and solutions. Started in India, this project is rapidly growing to be a world-wide resource for the visually impaired to both learn and interact.
Beth Kanter and Allison Fine's book, The Networked Nonprofit, is now out and starting lots of conversations. But what's everyone talking about? Below I've shared some excerpts and resources to get you started and ready to join in!
Let's start at the beginning: what is a "networked nonprofit" anyway? As Beth and Allison explain:
Last week saw events in Portland, Paris and North Carolina: the Camps Pilot is 4 events down, 2 to go! The original plan with these Notes from the Field was to share emerging questions and lessons on the blog in real time over the 8 weeks of event planning alongside the organizers. But, as there are still two more events to happen and much more evaluation and thinking about the pilot, I'm sure this will not be the end of the posts! (If you haven't been following these weekly notes, you can catch them all with the Camps-Notes tag.)
I recently had the opportunity to connect with Kedar to learn about a new project to help users measure and manage their consumption, in effect encouraging them to control their environmental impact. I found the project so interesting that I wanted to share it with you here in an interview, covering some key questions from Kedar. There's also a chance for you to provide your feedback, ideas, and even contribute!
I’ve followed Kivi’s work for years and am happy to call her a colleague and friend. She’s a go-to resource for nonprofit marketing and her new book is called The Nonprofit Marketing Guide (get your copy here). I’m thrilled to have the chance to share an interview with her here and encourage you to add your questions in the comments! This interview is part of her virtual book tour; check out the full calendar of events.
The NetSquared Camp pilot is off and running: The first event, in Cameroon, was a great success, with more events scheduled throughout the summer. On May 29th, 65 participants came together at Maison de Jeunes Bepanda, in Douala, Cameroon, for a full day of presentations and opportunities to share, learn and build together.
We have three events taking place next week and I'm really excited - I know they all have great speakers and participants coming, and there will certainly be some valuable content and conversations emerging. If you are in one of these regions and aren't signed up, check out the events in Portland, OR; Chapel Hill, NC; and Paris, France. But, back to the notes!
