Description: Net2 is an online and offline community created by TechSoup, a project of CompuMentor. We've helped nonprofits access direct assistance, web-based knowledge and articles, and donated technology products for 18 years.

Today, we recognize a turning point in nonprofit technology adoption. Through the immense possibilities of the Internet, nonprofits can turn hundreds of supporters into thousands, access new reserves of volunteerism, and give their constituencies tools to take charge of change.

This site is the online home of our effort to highlight projects around the world that succeed at the intersection of pervasive access, new tools, and new audiences.
