We have been working with a few charities in the Yorkshire area and I have to say I am shocked to find they don’t know about the discounts on offer when buying software and services! Have a look at this website:
Most registered charities and certain non-profit organisations qualify for heavily discounted software from quite a number of providers so I wanted to share the discounts that are available. I have picked out a few choice packages from their price list and compared them to the standard pricing on the internet from a typical supplier.
|Product||Retail Price||Discounted Price||% Saving|
|Microsoft Windows 7 Professional (32 or 64bit)||£ 158.62||£ 5.88||96%|
|Microsoft Office Professional 2007||£ 269.60||£ 12.93||95%|
|Microsoft Small Business Server 2008 Premium Edition||£ 1,101.22||£ 45.83||96%|
|Symantec Endpoint Protection (10 licenses)||£ 291.38||£ 43.48||85%|
|Cisco 520 Wireless Router for ADSL||£ 437.09||£ 58.75||87%|
All the prices include VAT as IT supplies and services still attract VAT even for charities 🙁 But what fantastic savings!
So if you are a charity looking to invest in technology to help you raise money and connect with your donors and clients use this service and save yourself a pile of money! If you want some help gathering your thoughts contact us.
