Resources for Non-Profit Organizations – Free and Discounted Products & Services


We work with many people who strive to improve the lives and well-being of others without wanting or expecting monetary rewards for themselves.  The creation of a non-profit organization is a common way to minimize the tax money given to the government in that situation and has other benefits as well.  There are many products and services that are provided for free or heavily discount for non-profit organizations.

Do you have (or support) a not-for-profit organization that could use products and services that can’t afford to buy or build?  Some resources are freely available to 501(c)(3) organizations in order to assist them in doing their charitable work.  The list below contains some of those resources that you may find valuable.

Computers & Technology

  • TechSoup.org – donated and discounted software and refurbished hardware
  • DreamHost – free web hosting for non-profits (see more information)
  • Doulos Design – low or no cost graphic design, website, and desktop publishing services to ministries and good works that might not otherwise be able to afford them
