Starting in July, you will notice that we have increased administrative (admin) fees for selected discount and donation programs, courses, and services at TechSoup. We periodically review and adjust admin fees to reflect the fair market value of products and our own costs to manage these programs.
We are a nonprofit ourselves, and the admin fees that we charge to access our offers support the overall value that we can continually bring to our nonprofit community. This helps us provide as many resources as possible to organizations like yours, and in the more than 200 countries and territories that our programs serve. We will strive to make sure that these offers will still be made at the lowest cost available to you and will remain at a fraction of their retail value.
Why We Have Admin Fees
Admin fees help cover our operating costs to curate and manage donation and discount programs and course offerings. Also, admin fees enable us to provide complementary resources and education, such as webinars, blog posts, forums, product comparisons, resource hubs, and more to civil society organizations around the world.
Further, these fees are used to develop new programs, such as services to support installation and adoption, and data gathering to help advocate for the sector as best as we can.
TechSoup remains dedicated to the civil society organizations across the planet that work to make the world a more equitable place. We believe that these admin fees will continue to support us in providing you the resources that you need. If you have any further questions, please contact us.
