Computer Software & Hardware Discounts
TechSoup Stock connects nonprofits such as the USPS ® with donated and discounted technology products in the supportive environment of the TechSoup Stock Web site. Choose from over 400 products from over 70 providers including Cisco and Microsoft. Although the program is not available as a general member benefit, those members who hold key roles in the squadron/district by volunteering their time and resources to achieve the goals of USPS and require certain software to facilitate that work can participate through the squadron.
In October 2015, the TechSoup website was updated. The information provided below is the best of our ability to provide you with information. In general, to sign up, join, or make access change to an existing account you can't get access to, go to the site and choose JOIN. Follow the links and it will walk you through what is needed. If you have any questions, please read through their FAQ page under SUPPORT. USPS does not have a contact to assist in any issue. Please address all questions to their customer support, found at the bottom of each page ("Contact Us").
Each squadron is required to provide documents attesting to 501(c)e status to receive discount. These documents are available through headquarters at 1-888-FOR-USPS.
