CTXchange enables eligible UK-based charities to request donated technology products from partners such as Microsoft, Symantec, Citrix and Cisco. Each partner has different eligibility criteria and a separate request must be made with each donor.

Charities pay a small administrative fee and the fee varies by donor and product but a saving of 92-96% on retail prices is usual. Registering with CTXchange to find out which programmes your charity eligible for is completely free.

Microsoft Windows 8 was released last week (26 October 2012), and includes new updates over previous iterations, such as a brand new interface and built-in support for social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, which will make it easier for charities to engage in social media.

Richard Craig, chief executive of CTT, said: “Keeping up to date with the latest developments in technology is important for charities and not-for-profit organisations to be able to operate as they should. Through CTXchange, our members have access to products such as Windows 8, which they might otherwise be unable to afford but which are vital in helping them to run their organisations more efficiently.”

Eligible charities can apply through CTXchange. More details about the Windows 8 programme can be found on the CTT website.
