How to Place an Order
To make an order through TechSoup Canada, you first need to have a registered and qualified account. Once you have a qualified account, you may login to your account to see which donor partners your organization is eligible for (by going to My Account > My Organization), and start placing requests.
Browsing the Catalogue
To look through the offers we have, hover your mouse over Browse Catalogue.
You may browse by Donor Partner e.g. (Adobe, Microsoft, etc.)
Or, you may browse by Category e.g. (Office & Business Software, Hardware, etc.)
You will see each product listed with its Administration Fees.
Validation Services refer to separately administered nonprofit programs, such as Google for Nonprofits, for whom we verify your organization’s nonprofit status. For some of these programs, we do this by providing a “Validation Token”.
Placing Your Order
Step 1: Login to Your Account - If you have not already, login to your account.
Step 2: Find Product in the Catalogue

Don’t hesitate to reach out to us before you order if you have any questions as most products are non-refundable.

For Cisco Orders
The Cisco donation program requires supplementary information from an organization; you will be contacted for this information via email once you have placed an order. Your order will not be processed until this information is returned.
All Cisco orders are subject to approval. Once you submit your separate Cisco order form, we will contact you by email.
Cisco equipment will be shipped to the address we have on file for your organization within 8 weeks of the date we receive your payment. Expect to receive a tracking number within 2 weeks of receiving payment that will let you track your shipment. Your SMARTnet support contract will be activated approximately 5 weeks after all the items in your donation have been received.
