About TechDonation

As the major source of income for most non-profit organizations is donation, NGOs commonly lack the budget to purchase updated systems and software tools. With such limitation, work efficiency is greatly impacted. In this connection, we have implemented a partnership program with TechSoup Global to donate technological products and related relevant solutions that meet the needs of NGOs.

In the TechDonation Program, all eligible NGOs need to pay only small administration fee to acquire the offered IT products. Since the Program’s inception in 2007, there have been more than 500 local non-profit applicants (Hong Kong and Macau) registering as a beneficiary. A total of 25,000 ICT products, worth over HK$88 million, have been donated through the Program. Evidently, the Program has been helping NGOs to save their resources for other major causes and projects successfully.
