Back in April we reported on Donortec a new service that provides Nonprofit access to technology donated by Microsoft & Cisco. Donortec is a small nonprofit, without a massive advertising budget and appreciates those with newsletters passing on their info.
To speed up our responses we’ve now assigned extra staff time to support enquiries. We can’t always answer calls immediately, and playing ‘telephone tag’ across time zones is a pain for everyone, so the best way to lodge your questions is by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief outline of your query and if necessary we’ll call you.
Cisco has provided us an annual allocation of donated goods and unfortunately our 06-07 allocation is now exhausted. We will reopen orders in August and will email all eligible organisations when that happens. We regret any inconvenience this causes.
Orders remain open for all qualified organisations for all listed Microsoft products and there’s been some changes recently, so check out the range at www.donortec.com.au . By the way, since we opened orders for Microsoft products on 1 March, our subscribers have saved over $5 million in comparison to the list prices for these products!
Many organisations have asked for a list of local technology service providers in their area, especially ones who are used to working with nonprofits. To help out we have joined forces with www.techfinder.org to build up the Australian section of their directory. So if you have a technology service provider you’d recommend to others, encourage them to list themselves by going to http://techsoup.org/techfinder/index.cfm?p=provider_new and adding their service profile.
