Introduction to the BigTech- Software Donations Program

How do I Register ?

Welcome to the NASSCOM Foundation BigTech software Donations Program. We have created this page to give you an idea of what you can expect from your membership with BigTech. We hope this will help you to register and clarify how the donation program works for organizations like yours!

NGOs, non-profits and charities are eligible for most of our programs. There are three steps involved in signing up:

1) Sign up as an individual
2) Register your organization
3) Submit documents

The first step to register for the donations program is to sign up as an individual. This allows you to participate in the community by posting on blogs. Once you have signed up and verified your account (by clicking on the link in the email we send you), you will be able to register your organization.

 To fill out the registration form, you will need to know details about your organization like Charity registration number, Operating budget, IT PAN number of organization, FCRA number, and Mission statement.

We will contact you if we require any documentation to verify your status, budget, address, or activities. Please keep an eye on the e-mail id you registered with us for any requests!

We will confirm your organization’s eligibility status within 7-10 working days of receipt or less.

The most important thing to do at this time is to make sure our e-mails don’t end up in to your spam folder, or you will not receive your donations. Almost all of our products are e-mailed instead of being shipped via courier, so add our e-mail to your safe list
