Boost Your Nonprofit's Fundraising with TechSoup's Product Donations and Discounts

As the fiscal year comes to an end, budgeting and financial planning are top of mind for many organizations. Additionally, the 2017 passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act could have a major impact on the nonprofit community. According to the Council on Foundations, the recent changes to the tax code could reduce charitable giving by as much as $24 billion per year.

This new law means that most nonprofits will need to rely on fundraising efforts more in the coming fiscal year than ever before. Our catalog offers a number of different digital fundraising software programs that can help you secure the funding needed to keep your mission going. Let's take a look at what's available.
