Get the gear you need to achieve your mission! TechSoup offers many donations and discounts for religious charities, such as churches, synagogues, and mosques.
Here is our handy guide to the 10 biggest donation programs for religious charities at TechSoup, with 2 bonus less well-known programs that are very popular for religious charities.
Many churches and other religious charities rely on Microsoft products for communications, connecting with their communities, and managing data. That's why Microsoft products are by far the most popular donations for religious charities at TechSoup.
Eric Hom of Saint Raymond Catholic Church told us his church uses donated Microsoft Office in the following ways:
"We use Microsoft Access for our database, and we use PowerPoint on screens around the church to announce church activities. A single laptop runs all the screens. We also publish a thousand church bulletins each week that we create with Microsoft Publisher. We also use Publisher for our welcome brochure."
Microsoft server products such as Windows Server and SQL Server are also in high demand by religious charities, along with Windows 10 upgrades.

Of course, religious charities also need hardware to run all that donated software on, which is why TechSoup's hardware donations are so popular.
TechSoup's hardware donation programs offer factory-refurbished commercial-grade laptop and desktop computers to churches, synagogues, mosques, and other religious organizations. Our aim is to supply charities with high-quality IT equipment at less than half the price of equivalent new equipment. We also offer other hardware, such as tablets and digital projectors.
TechSoup's hardware catalog is constantly expanding, so check out our hardware page for the latest offers.

Your community members trust that you will keep their information safe. Defend that data from viruses, spyware, and hackers by using the right security tools. The Bitdefender donation program at TechSoup offers a variety of security tools for religious charities, including antivirus and Internet security for Mac and Windows computers and for mobile devices.
While many religious charities rely on community donations to do their good work, grants can be another important source of funding. That's why GrantStation is one of the most popular donation programs for religious charities. GrantStation offers a comprehensive set of online grant research tools to find local, state, and federal grant opportunities.
On January 26 and 27, TechSoup will be offering a special promotion on GrantStation: $99 for an annual subscription!

Comodo not only offers Internet and endpoint security programs through TechSoup, it also can help your religious organization's website stay secure with SSL certification (that's how your website gets the secure "s" in HTTPS).
The top 10 donations for religious organizations are, unsurprisingly, some of our biggest and most well-known technology donation programs. Here are 2 less well-known programs that our religious charities like best.
We discovered that Horizon DataSys products are even more popular among religious charities than among other types of organizations. These tools allow you to "roll back" your PCs to a previous clean state. Horizon DataSys tools are especially useful if your religious charity runs a computer lab or offers computer access to the public.
Even in this digital age, many of your members still like to hear from their favorite religious charities via traditional paper mail. Sending out your bulletins, announcements, and fundraising appeals can be more streamlined with discounted Pitney Bowes mailing systems from TechSoup.
Through this program, your religious charity can rent Pitney Bowes digital mailing systems (including a postage meter, scale, envelope feed, and more) at a significant discount.
