How do I Register?
Welcome to the TechSoup Canada Donations Program!
The donations program is open to charities, libraries and nonprofits (sadly, co-operatives and nonprofits incorporated under special acts are not eligible at this time). The first step to accessing the donations program is to register. We will review your application and match your organization with the discounts and donations for which you are eligible.
There are 3 Steps to Registering
1) Sign up as an individual
This account will be linked to your organization in the second step.
Using an email address on your organization’s domain or listed on your website can speed up the qualification process.
Remember your login credentials! These are the details you will use to login to your TechSoup account.
2) Register your organization
Once logged into your individual account, you will see a link to register your organization.
You will be asked to provide a few key pieces of information. Please have to hand:
- Charitable registration number/ Incorporation number / Library symbol
- Operating budget / projected budget
For charities and libraries, after submitting your application, there are no further steps and we will contact you if we require any further information!
Has your organization registered before?
Occasionally, your organization may already have an account that everyone in the organization forgot about. Your attempt to register will flag our duplicate checker - you can send us an email at customerservice@techsoupcanada with your organization’s information and we will be happy to help you retrieve your previous account.
Is your organization a branch?
We are able to qualify branch accounts under some circumstances. One of these conditions is that the parent organization should already have an account.
If you are submitting a branch application please enter the parent organization’s name and separate your branch location with a hyphen (e.g. TechSoup - Canada). We will review your application and reach out if further information is needed.
3) Submit documents (Nonprofits only)
You can email your documents to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to 1-855-231-1310. We will respond to let you know we have received the documents.
