Microsoft becomes software donor

Microsoft, in conjunction with Community Information Strategies Australia (CISA), has launched a program helping companies to donate technology to non-profit organisations. The software giant pledged to donate more than $20 million in software this year through the new DonorTec initiative.

1200 nonprofit organisations have currently signed up to use DonorTec and 700 have placed orders for software. Microsoft estimates that at its current rate, 1000 non-profit organisations will have the chance to save around $22 mil- lion this year, which will provide them with the opportunity to free up resources to fund community and charity work.

"Microsoft wants to help Australian non-profits get the technological resources they need to run their businesses efficiently without having to pay a huge price," Microsoft Australia community affairs manager, Paul Clark, said. "The money they save on purchasing software can go a long way in making a difference to the communities they serve."

Microsoft has also supplied $65,000 worth of technology to Guide Dogs Queensland, which has helped free up funds to purchase mobility tools for the blind and vision impaired.
