Resources For NonProfits
We love non-profit organizations and the important work they do, so we’re putting together a list of resources for non profit organizations. While we do offer a tech support discount for non profit organizations in Toronto, we wanted to do more, and so, we’ve begun this list of resources. We welcome your email on other resources you think should be included. The criteria are:
- the resource offers something helpful to non profit organizations for free, or at a reduced rate
- the resource be local to Toronto, Ontario, or can be provided remotely, or is a short enough distance to make a return trip manageable in one day
