Your work is vital. We are raising funds to support it.
We at TechSoup are deeply saddened at the news of the devastating earthquake in Nepal. Relief organizations are providing aid to those affected, including rescue, first aid, food, clean water, and shelter. We've compiled a list of resources to help you support these efforts.

Your employer may also match donations. Our donor partners Microsoft and Cisco, for example, are matching their employees' donations to earthquake relief efforts. Don't hesitate to ask if your employer is doing the same.

MicroMappers, a "microtasking" service, asks users to identify tweets and photos that show earthquake damage. This information will help the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) assess conditions after the Nepal earthquake.
If you have friends, family, or colleagues in Nepal, there are several ways to connect with them:
TechSoup's Guide for Disaster Planning and Recovery can help your organization prepare for any situation and recover faster so you can support your mission.
