About TechDonation

As the major source of income for most non-profit organizations is donation, NGOs commonly lack the budget to purchase updated systems and software tools. With such limitation, work efficiency is greatly impacted. In this connection, we have implemented a partnership program with TechSoup Global to donate technological products and related relevant solutions that meet the needs of NGOs.

In the TechDonation Program, all eligible NGOs need to pay only small administration fee to acquire the offered IT products. Since the Program’s inception in 2007, there have been more than 1,800 local non-profit applicants (Hong Kong and Macau) registering as a beneficiary. Evidently, the Program has been helping NGOs to save their resources for other major causes and projects successfully.

Update on Microsoft Software Donation Program

Today we’re sharing news from Microsoft and an update on planned changes to their program on TechDonation:


-          A blog post from Microsoft’s Tech for Social Impact group recently laid out improvements and changes to their nonprofit offers and donation model, and

-          Some of these changes will impact the current Microsoft Software Donation Program on TechDonation, and may be of interest to your nonprofit or library. 


The recent blog post from Microsoft Philanthropies’ Tech for Social Impact group https://blogs.microsoft.com/on-the-issues/?p=57515 shares their vision and commitment to ensuring that nonprofits, and those they serve, are not left behind as technology advancements accelerate.  Microsoft’s longstanding software donation program on TechDonation is evidence of their commitment to the sector.  TechDonation is engaging with Microsoft and more than 100 other technology providers to expand the ways we support access to technology solutions and services for nonprofits and libraries to help ensure you can affordably adopt and use the most effective technology to deliver your mission.


We’ve summarized below the Microsoft changes announced in their blog post that may influence your TechDonation experience.  Please take a few minutes to review, so that you can plan effectively for your technology needs. 


How will the current Microsoft Software Donation Program on TechDonation change on April 1st?


Product Selection:  Microsoft is optimizing its ‘on-premises’ product donations on meeting the needs of smaller organizations.  Standard versions of all Microsoft “on-premises” products will continue to be available as donations to eligible nonprofits and libraries through TechDonation.  Premium versions of Microsoft on-premises products will no longer be available as donated offers on TechDonation, but will be available with the same eligibility at a nonprofit discount.  There are no changes to donated cloud offers available from Microsoft.


Choice across all Donated Products on TechDonation:  Starting April 1, you can choose among any Microsoft donated products for your licensing without being limited by 10 title groups.


Program Rules and Eligibility Stay the Same:  Microsoft eligibility for donated offers through TechDonation remains the same.  These same eligibility rules are standardized across any source of Microsoft nonprofit discounts.  Donated license limits available over a 2-year cycle remain the same through TechDonation.


Assistance Learning About & Accessing Options:  Microsoft’s improvements and changes offer nonprofits a range of donations, discounts and licensing options.  TechDonation is committed to helping you understand the best options for your needs – whether donated or discounted, ‘on-premises’, cloud or hybrid.  Where possible, we will provide direct access in one easy place.


New and Noteworthy at microsoft.com/nonprofits:  In case you missed it in the blog post by Microsoft, we’re ‘calling out’ these exciting new direct offers for nonprofits you can get from Microsoft -- an Office 365 volunteer SKU, an expansion of Microsoft 365 with E3 and E5 offers, and Microsoft Surface to 10 new markets.


Thank you for all you do to for your communities.

Good news! TechDonation relaxes the application eligibility for NGOs. With immediate effect, TechDonation accepts service units / branches of NGOs to register separate accounts.

In addition, the following criteria have to be fulfilled:

1.         The service unit must have an individual address

2.         If the NGO has various units within the same service complex, yet offering services for different target populations, each unit is permitted to register a separate account

3.         If a unit has multiple service spots within a building/ area, offering similar services to the same community, the unit is not eligible for a separate account

4.         Different service programmes/ projects within a unit is not eligible for a separate account


Points to note for separate account registration

-         Registering a separate account follows the normal application procedures which can be done online at www.techdonation.org.hk

-         Please submit the online application in English and prefix the abbreviation of parent organization ito theunit name

-         Service unit will receive TechDonation’s email for the request of submitting the required documents for validation after submitting the online application
