Cheap Software for Charities

The Charity Technology Trust (CTT), in partnership with the not-for-profit technology capacity building organisation TechSoup, offers eligible UK-based charities the opportunity to buy at considerable discounts standard applications such as Microsoft Office 2013 and Adobe Photoshop CS6.

Other the products available include operating system  and server software, applications and security software, and hardware products such as switches, routers, wireless equipment and firewalls.

Charities are required to pay an Administrative Fee per product to cover the costs of delivering the programme. Whilst the administrative fees vary, charities will still make savings of between 92-96% on typical retail prices.

Charities have access to a wide array of educational resources through the CTX Programme which helps them best choose, implement, and use the available technology.

To find out more about the programme and the range of software and equipment available, visit the CTX Programme's website.
