Make sure your organization gets all of the hardware or software it needs from TechSoup before our fiscal year ends on June 30, 2011.

Why the rush? Most of TechSoup's donation programs limit the number of requests an organization can place per fiscal year - our fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30. Don't worry, you can request products again on July 1, but you don't want to miss out on getting your fiscal year 2011 allotment.

How Do I Know What's Still Available?

Check the programs that run on TechSoup's fiscal year below (note that Microsoft donations are not limited by our fiscal year - for more info see the Microsoft rules).

[Programs Affected by TechSoup's Fiscal Year End]

Then, double check your organization's eligibility for those programs by logging in to your TechSoup account and taking our Check Eligibility Quiz. Select Donation Request History in My Account to verify if you've reached the limit in these programs. Keep in mind that every program has different rules and allotments, so check carefully!

As an example, the Atlas Business Solutions donation program allows qualified organizations one donation of Staff Manager per fiscal year. So, first check your eligibility for the program, then check your donation history. If you've already received one donation of Staff Manager, you're done through June 30, 2011. But, starting July 1, 2011, you can start requesting again and get another copy anytime during the next fiscal year (July 1, 2011 - June 30, 2012).

Place Requests Again After July 1

On July 1, the fiscal year cycle resets, so your organization can start requesting products from the programs you're eligible for any time after that. This means that if you request that copy of Staff Manager before June 30, 2011, your organization can request another copy anytime between July 1, 2011 and June 30, 2012.
