Microsoft Tops Software Donations in 07
Tuesday, 29th January 2008 at 3:15 pm

Microsoft’s software donation program recorded one of its biggest years in 2007, with over AU$17 million worth of software distributed to Australian Not for Profits.

Microsoft offers a wide range of software through its donation program, which is administered by DonorTec and enables charities and NFP organisations to obtain many popular products like Windows, Office and server systems.

Microsoft noted that the success of the program in 2007 was the result of DonorTec’s exemplary work in promoting and managing the software donation program.

Paul Clark, Community Affairs Manager, Microsoft Australia says that since they
began partnering with DonorTec there has been an enormous increase in the number of charities accessing our software donation program.

Clark says DonorTec is integral to the success of the program and has helped Microsoft to provide software and digital skills training to Australia’s NFP sector.

He says they want to make sure that in this digital age, technology is not a barrier to equality, but can be a powerful tool for beneficial change for the community.

Microsoft’s partnership with DonorTec focuses on providing resources to build capacity and is based on a social enterprise model. DonorTec enables Microsoft, along with others, to donate technology products, services, content, community support and other resources to Australia’s NFP sector.
