Charities

Canadian charities are eligible for most of the programs. There are three steps involved in signing up:

  1. Sign Up as an Individual
  2. Register your Organization
  3. Submit Documents

1) Sign up as an individual

The first step to registering for the donations program is to sign up as an individual. This will allow you to participate in the community by posting on blogs. Once you have signed up and verified your account (by clicking on the link in the email TechSoup Canada sends you), you will be able to register your organization.

2) Register your organization

To fill out the registration form, you will need to know:

  • Charity registration number (e.g. 123456789RR0001)
  • Operating budget

3) Submit documents

Our team will contact you if we require any documentation to verify your status, budget, address, or activities, so please keep an eye on the e-mail you registered with us for any requests!

TechSoup Canada will confirm your organization’s eligibility status within 7-10 working days of receipt or less.

The most important thing to do at this time is to make sure our e-mails don’t end up in your spam folder, or you will not receive your donations. Almost all of our products are e-mailed instead of being shipped via courier, so add our e-mail to your safe list.

How do you know if you are a charity?

A charity has a charitable registration number that finishes in RR0001 (or higher). Your organization might hold both charity and nonprofit status – in this case, for maximum eligibility, it’s best you register as a charity with our program. If you aren’t sure whether or not you have charity status, you can search for your organization on the Canada Revenue Agency’s website.

If you’re not a charity, please take a look at the tabs on top on of the page to pick the category that best represents your organization.

How does eligibility work?

Charities qualify for most of our programs. TechSoup Canada will match you with donor partners based on the restrictions they have set.

Registering your charity with TechSoup Canada means you will be able to request product donations from our donations program. Only one TechSoup Canada member can act as an authorized agent for an organization.

Nonprofits

Nonprofit organizations are not registered as charities. They are incorporated by the province or federally by Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada.

  • Operating budget
  • Number of computers for staff

3) Submit documents

You’ll need to scan or fax a copy of your nonprofit documentation to send to us before we can finalize your account. To make this process a little faster for you, we’ve created a list of the documents required for each type of provincial nonprofit.

Provincial Documentation for nonprofits

You can email your documents to customerservice@techsoupcanada.ca or fax them to 1-855-231-1310.
