Re: Upgrade Adobe InDesign 5.5 to 6.0 or is 5.5 still available?
Hi Michelle, At this time, Adobe has reduced the number of licenses available through TechSoup to maintain consistent availability on fewer titles. InDesign CS6 is one of the programs that was not replenished. We are trying very hard to get all the previous programs we offered back in stock, but they...

Re: Disqualified for Adobe
David, It can indeed be tricky to find an organization type and subtype that is both appropriate and gets you the best eligibility for your organization. The Adobe products are very popular, but it is also our most narrow program and not every organization is eligible. My suggestion is to see what...

Re: Disqualified for Adobe
We were trying our darndest to get some Adobe product as well (we're a non-profit that does a lot of graphic/web design) but in the end we were told that only orgs that actually put the software in front of a cycle of users -- like a library or a school -- can get it. At least that's my second...

Rich, Since your organization is newly registered with TechSoup, there are some things that should be looked into before placing your first request for donated software. As what you will be requesting are donated products, there are rules, guidelines and restrictions for each program. Your organization...

Adobe InDesign availability?
Greetings, We're in desperate need of a new design program for our mailings, and our preferred choice is Adobe's InDesign for Windows. I'm not seeing this listed on your site, though you said earlier this year it was available. Can you please show me how to find this using your search...

Re: our org is not eligible for Adobe products?
Hi mizdee, I see that you've already spoken with one of my colleagues in customer service. The Adobe donation program is indeed very popular but also one of our smallest programs and available to a relatively small percentage of organizations that register with TechSoup Stock. If you have not...

Re: Acrobat 8.1.4 Pro
Emily, First, I have removed the license key from your post. This is a public forum that anyone can view so please be careful about including private information in your posts. First, let me address the conversation that you had with Adobe. Generally, when the donations programs are set up, TechSoup...

Re: Upgrade Adobe InDesign 5.5 to 6.0 or is 5.5 still available?
Hi Brie! We are currently out of stock on all Adobe licenses. The good news is we will be getting more licenses in of our Adobe catalog in September, 2013 (when in September is currently unknown). Keep an eye on those new product alert emails because they're going to let you know when Adobe is...

Re: Cisco "out of stock"
Hi Matthewpaulmaes, At this time, Adobe has reduced the number of licenses available through TechSoup to maintain consistent availability on fewer titles. Creative suite 6 Production Premium is one of the programs that was not replenished. We are trying very hard to get all the previous programs we...

Re: Not Eligible for Adobe?
The restrictions on donations are extremely literal. If your nonprofit is not listed with techsoup as doing exactly the kind of work that a donor's restrictions require, it does not matter what you are actually doing, and you will not get the donation. Nor can you immediately change the description...

I only found Lightroom 2 available for purchase through TechSoup. Are there plans to make Lightroom 3 available since it is now the current version of Lightroom from Adobe. If so when will it be available through TechSoup for nonprofit organizations.

Re: Out of stock?
Hi Jangell2, We believe all of Adobe's products are moving to the cloud. You can see a list of the Creative tools here . At this time, we do not have any information about the availability of Adobe Photoshop Training. You may be interested in reviewing the Photoshop training courses offered by...

Re: "The Adobe donation program is not available to your organization type. "
Hi Autumn- We also found that there was a classification that prevented us from participating in the Adobe program. However, about two years ago we were able to purchase one of their products through TS. My reading of the requirements does include historic preservation and neighborhood revitalization...

Re: Adobe CS3- More than two computers?
Carole, The Adobe products that are available through the TechSoup Stock donation program each include one license. According to the Adobe License Agreement information, a single license (as opposed to a volume license) is generally considered a user license and a single user may be able to install...

Re: Restrictions on Adobe Products
There are a few things that you can look into. First, I would check the Adobe Special Donation Program . It doesn't have CS5, but it has quite a few CS4 products. If that doesn't have anything that you can use, have a look at our Quick Guide to Discounted Software Programs , which has a variety...

Hi Joanne, Your organization is indeed eligible for the Adobe Special Donation Program. It could be that you had a product from the regular donation program or had exceeded the limit allowed per fiscal year. Below I am including links to the Adobe Special Donation Program as we still have Photoshop...
