Important Program Closure Information

Since its launch in May 2005, the SAP Donation Program at TechSoup Canada has provided a range of business intelligence software and services to eligible nonprofits, charities, and public libraries throughout Canada.  SAP has been honored to collaborate with TechSoup Canada to support these organizations' great work.

Aligned with SAP's approach to corporate social responsibility through strategic social investments, the SAP Donation Program will end on March 27, 2015. Following this date, TechSoup Canada will no longer accept product requests for SAP through the program. If your organization has already completed a request, you must complete your registration and pay the administrative fee by March 27, 2015.

SAP will continue to support charitable organizations through its ongoing corporate social responsibility initiatives, including the SAP Grant Program, which provides direct funding to nonprofits.  Read more about SAP North America's CSR programs.

Organizations will continue to have access to support for SAP software through the SAP Help Portal as well as access to the following resources.
