Australian Not for Profits can now obtain Microsoft software and Cisco hardware at a small fraction of the retail price thanks to a project called DonorTec.

Doug Jacquier the CEO of Community Information Strategies Australia Inc CISA) says this is a wonderful, but often unknown, opportunity especially for small and medium organisations, to upgrade their IT capacity for a limited cost and to free up savings for other priorities.

DonorTec aims to assist a wide range of charities and Income Tax Exempt Not for Profit organisations by providing donated current software and hardware for a small administration fee, in conjunction with donor partners, Microsoft and Cisco.

The DonorTec Program is delivered in Australia by CommunIT, a CISA project, in partnership with TechSoup in the US.

Both CISA and Compumentor/TechSoup are Not for Profit organisations.

Products such Microsoft Office 2007 Professional for $26, Vista operating system upgrade for $13, Digital Image Suite 2006 for $6.50 and many more (including server software) are now available through DonorTec.

A check of the website shows desk top publishing software for just $6.50 and project management programs for $51.00.

Many organisations will also be eligible for Cisco hardware products, including wireless routers and adapters.

Doug Jacquier says religious, business and professional associations are excluded but there are many organisations in the cultural, health, training, youth, conservation, and community services sectors that will be able to take advantage of this service.

Not for Profits only have to register their details and show that they are an accredited Income Tax Exempt organisation by the Australian Taxation Office and have an Australian Business Number (ABN).
