Software for non-profit

The non-profit I work for is looking into buying the Adobe Creative Suite 3 for our editing needs. I don't see any offer for non-profits on the Adobe website, nor have I ever seen aything about this topic here on the forum. There are a number of websites advertizing Adobe software for education and non-profits, but which one is trustworthy?

Anyone with experience please share it with us.

Thanks,

If you browse carefully you can find the spot on Adobe's website where you can get their software for education/non-profit use. The education store is at Adobe - Education and the non-profit store is at www.adobe/nonprofit.

The education link has info on education only.

The nonprofit page does not exist.

Edit: the link you posted was bad, it comes up now (it's not adobe/nonprofit but adobe.com/nonprofit).

Thanks,

Check out: TechSoup - The Technology Place for Nonprofits

I work for a non-profit as well (Opera Company of Philadelphia) and we have gotten lots of software from them. Haven't ordered any recently, but they used to have some pretty substantial deals from Microsoft, Adobe and others. However there were a number of rules to follow and deadlines to meet.

Good organization though.

I have used Academic Superstore several times and have been pretty happy with them.
