DonorTec partners with Xero
We’re often asked if we support a certain cause or charity. We don’t as such, but we do support the nonprofit sector by providing a discount on subscriptions to Xero. Not only do we value what they’re doing, but we also think Xero can make it much easier to do the books for many of these organisations.
Late last year we partnered with TechSoup to provide Xero at a discount to the nonprofit sector in New Zealand and we’re now pleased to announce that this arrangement has been extended to Australia through the DonorTec program. This is provided by Connecting Up Australia, the local partner of US based TechSoup Global, which is a worldwide network of individuals and organisations that believe technology is a powerful enabler for social change.
Connecting Up Australia manages the technology donation program from companies such as Microsoft and Cisco for the benefit of qualified nonprofit organisations around Australia. Xero is now part of the line up of leading technology products and resources being offered to the nonprofit and charity sector.
In Australia the nonprofit and charity sector includes in excess of 700,000 organisations. Connecting Up CEO Doug Jacquier says over the past three years, the DonorTec program has saved Australian charities and nonprofits more than $80 million on their IT costs.
“We are constantly being asked about adding quality accounting products to the offerings available via DonorTec. So, after pioneering our relationship with Xero via TechSoup New Zealand, we are delighted to now be able to offer uniquely discounted Xero online accounting services in Australia via the DonorTec program. With a rapidly growing customer base in small business, we recommend Australian nonprofits take a serious look at Xero when next assessing their accounting needs.”
Eligible organisations registered with DonorTec just need to login to DonorTec and click the Xero sign-up link to get a 25% discount on their first organisation subscription.
