July 2008

We are working toward a time when every social benefit organization on the planet has the technology resources and knowledge they need to operate at their full potential

We meet this mission in 2 ways:

  • Direct Services which provide technology products and community to social benefit organizations

  • Indirect Services which support capacity-building in the sectors we serve

Techsoup services make it possible for organizations to concentrate on their mission

TechSoup services make it possible for organizations to concentrate on their mission.

“Solutions were installed five months ago, and we’ve quite literally not asked for a single IT support call-out since.”

-Ian Trafford, 42nd Street

In the UK’s Manchester area, the 42nd Street provides services to young people experiencing mental health problems.

“Investing resources in a technology plan provided a framework for how to make changes...and it’s also a way to let the organization know that we value it, support it, and invest in it.”

-Charlie Quaid, Director of Finance, San Francisco Conservation Corps

San Francisco Conservation Corps serves more than 250 young people each year. Corps members engage in community service programs that range from installing play structures to supporting local recycling programs.

Organizations Served by Cisco in FY08

Using a Cisco ASA-5505, America’s Second Harvest was able to set-up a VPN between our Chicago office and a new food bank opened in San Diego. The new food bank just opened and has very limited funding for technology and no funding for technology staff.  Using the ASA-5505, we connected them to our systems in Chicago so they could run their email, warehouse food management and financial accounting system off our server.  We also used a Cisco switch to network the local San Diego office PCs.  As they expand, they will likely install a Cisco VOIP system.

The majority of our food banks are smaller operations with no technology staff and very limited budgets.... The ability to acquire Cisco equipment through Tech Soup is a great benefit to our network. As the economy becomes worse and more people are in need of our assistance, we need to direct even more operating funds to food and transportation, leaving even less for technology.

Cisco’s support of this program is a great help to America’s

Second Harvest’s mission of providing hope by Feeding America.

Thank you, Kevin

The cee direct model

The CEE Direct Model

  • TechSoup CEE office

    • TechSoup will host and run operations regionally from their CEE office in Warsaw, and will manage/ coordinate with TS Affiliates and TS Fellows (with assistance as required from the head office global operations team).

  • Regional rather than Country focus

    • For activities such as defining eligibility and outreach, the focus will be placed on implementing a regional rather than country specific model. This will help simplify the deployment and ongoing management of the model.

  • Introduction of Advisory Board Concept

    • Key stakeholders and regional experts will be engaged to help assist in the design and evolution of the direct model and the core components of the model such as the TechSoup affiliates and fellows concepts.
