Microsoft Donation Program: Get Your Questions Answered Thursday, August 11, 10 a.m. Pacific Register Online

Each year, the Microsoft Donation Program provides millions of dollars of software donations to nonprofits and libraries around the world, enabling them to use those financial resources elsewhere. But not everyone who is eligible takes advantage of this program - many people don't know about it and others, we suspect, have some unanswered questions.

This webinar, presented by Kami Griffiths and Penny Clifton, will focus on you and your questions. When you register, please submit your questions using the registration form. We will do our best to group questions and address them all. There will also be time at the end for any additional questions. Our goal is to better inform our community so every organization that is eligible for donations is able to better leverage technology to further their mission.
