Amazing web sites providing technology for non-profits!

 I learned about TechSoup.org  and TechAtlas.org from my readings for class this week:

TechSoup is a nonprofit with a clear focus: providing other nonprofits and libraries with technology that empowers them to fulfill their missions and serve their communities. As part of that goal, we provide technology products and information geared specifically to the unique challenges faced by nonprofits and libraries.

TechAtlas is a technology planning tool that helps non-profits do a technology assessment and come up with a technology plan. 

I am really excited, because our family is involved with refugee resettlement in Tucson, and my husband has been trying to provide tech support to newly settled refuges. These sites will make a huge difference, I think, in our efforts to help refugees get technology resources, training, and equipment! The need is overwhelming, and the resources are so stop-gap; the various refugee resettlement programs in town are reliant mainly on volunteers, and the case workers are overloaded. I can also think of some local literacy groups that could use these resources.
