Program Gives Nonprofits a Cut of Tech-Firm Purchases

A new program launched by the Cambridge nonprofit Technology Underwriting Greater Good helps tech firms support local nonprofits by donating a percentage of their routine purchases to charity, The Boston Globe reports.

When participating tech companies place orders with suppliers that are part of the program’s network, a portion of the money—a suggested 3 to 10 percent—goes to the charity, which supports other nonprofits.

So far, two Massachusetts companies have signed on. Through another program, purchases made through can also go to the charity.
