Symantec Desktop Donations Program Information

The Symantec Donations Program is designed to meet the needs of small non-profits and ensure they have access to the Symantec technology they need to achieve their missions. Symantec is dedicated to being an agent for positive change in those communities around the world where the company and its employees live and work. To accomplish this, Symantec partners with community organizations that address pressing social needs, with a focus on youth and education. A combination of monetary gifts, employee volunteerism and product donations leverages Symantec's resources in ways that allow them to have the most impact.

We are pleased to announce that the Symantec Donations Program includes Symantec Enterprise Products, Symantec Desktop Products. Qualifying organizations are invited to maximize the individual benefits of these exciting offerings.

Symantec Desktop Products provide security for a single computer. Symantec Enterprise Products are installed on a server to provide security for multiple networked computers in a small to large business environment.
