I.T Charity Donations

Posted on: 23rd September 2011

Andrew George MP is encouraging local charities to investigate whether they could benefit from a company’s software donation programme.

The company, Microsoft, invests in several programmes designed to help voluntary and community organisations make the best use of technology.

Working with the Charity Technology Trust through their Charity Technology Exchange service, Microsoft is one of a growing number of technology companies which makes donations of their products to the voluntary sector.

The company has contacted Mr George to explain that it offers those charities which are eligible up to ten titles. Recipients pay a nominal administrative fee to the Charity Technology Exchange which supports the running of the services.

Since the launch of the programme in 2006, Microsoft alone has supported more than 6,700 charities in the UK, donating software with a value of more than £50 million.
