Working with non-profits? Then TechSoup has your licensing answer

When we began working with non-profit organizations, we were finding that licensing was in some cases just about as expensive for them as for our corporate clients.

One of our non-profit clients pointed out that they purchase a good chunk of their licensing from an organization called TechSoup.

It is amazing what the discounts are for software licensing. Microsoft's licenses are Open Business with Software Assurance for 2 years.

Server licenses for under $100US, SBS, Office, Windows XP/Vista upgrade, Office for Mac, and more. There are a lot of known and somewhat unknown software vendors who facilitate non-profit licensing there.

Check it out and use it with your non-profit clients. It could potentially save them thousands in licensing fees!
