The ENCLUDE mission is thus to bring affordable, trustworthy systems and IT consultancy to Irish charities and make available the benefits of ICT in terms of performance improvement, operation efficiency and the better use of donor funds.  ENCLUDE is about e-inclusion - the reduction of the digital divide in Irish Society.

The ENCLUDEit Technology Donation Programme is a partnership between ENCLUDE and TechSoup, the San Francisco-based nonprofit technology capacity building organisation, that links technology donations from leading software and hardware manufacturers and the Irish community and voluntary sector.

The programme assists organisations by making donated software available for a very low administrative fee, thereby helping them to make the most of their ICT purchases and infrastructure. Whilst the administrative fees vary, charities will still make savings of between 92-96% on typical retail prices. Receiving technology product donations frees up stretched NGO budgets for both technology priorities and other programme areas.

The ENCLUDEit Programme enables eligible organisations to gain access to donated technology products, allowing them to choose from a wide range of products from Donor Partners such as Microsoft, Cisco, and Symantec.  Acquiring a donation is simple - just follow the registration process on www.encludeit.org .
