and organizations to provide knowledge, training, and tools to nonprofits,
libraries, and NGOs around the world.

Expanding the TechSoup
Global Network’s strategic partnerships with key players such as the Foundation
Center, which works to provide insight on philanthropic activities and social
issues around the world, will allow us to build on the strengths of our
network, bring more valuable resources to communities most in need, and help
NGOs "show themselves" locally and globally.
Masisak, co-CEO of TechSoup Global
our newest collaboration takes shape, we’re exploring new opportunities to co-host
events and share our content with the aim of expanding knowledge and insights
with wider audiences in the social-benefit sector.
The Foundation Center knows
that collaboration with other organizations is the most effective way to meet
the needs of the social sector. The partnership with TechSoup Global is
particularly exciting because together we can provide access to more
comprehensive tools and information for those working towards social change,
helping to turn their goals — such as protecting the environment, advancing
human rights, or providing education — into realities.
Smith, president of the Foundation Center
The Foundation Center, established
in 1956 and based in New York City, strengthens the social-benefit sector by
advancing knowledge about philanthropy in the U.S. and around the world. They
maintain the most comprehensive database on U.S. and, increasingly, global
grantmakers and their grants. They also operate research, education, and
training programs designed to advance knowledge of philanthropy at every level.
Foundation Center provides information through a distributed network of
affiliates — in all 50 states and in 14 countries — together with strategic
partnerships. The alliance with TechSoup Global is in alignment with the center’s stated priorities to build the global data platform for philanthropy
and to connect nonprofits to the resources they need to thrive. For more
