London, 10th September 2013 – Charity Technology Trust (CTT) today announced that UK faith-based organisations will now be able to request donations of more than 250 Microsoft products at savings of 94%
The news comes as the result of Microsoft changing the eligibility requirements for its global donations programme to include faith-based organisations. The products on offer range from the most up-to-date Office suites and graphic design software to servers.
“Faith-based organisations have a long tradition of community service and making important contributions to public life in the UK and internationally,” said Richard Craig, CEO of CTT. “We are pleased that Microsoft recognises this and we are now able to offer its solutions to these charities through CTXchange thanks the newly expanded eligibility requirements.”
Over a two year period, faith-based charities can request up to 50 licences for up to 10 Microsoft products and up to 5 server products. More information on available products and eligibility can be found here.
