History

CompuMentor was born in 1987 after current president Daniel Ben-Horin discovered The Well, the first community on the web. He proposed "to help those who needed it, and they accepted." Officially called The CompuMentor Project, it began with 2,500 dollars and volunteers of the highest quality. Today, CompuMentor has over 80 employees, an annual budget of over $9 million, and assists tens of thousands of non-profits in the United States and throughout the global community.

TechCommons

CompuMentor recently changed the name of its hands-on technology assistance program from Consulting Services to TechCommons. Through TechCommons, CompuMentor will continue to help Bay Area nonprofit organizations find the technology assistance they need. In addition, TechCommons will support nonprofit technology assistance providers (NTAPs) by developing tools and resources to aid their work. Through a series of distinct, collaborative projects, TechCommons will develop systemic solutions to pressing nonprofit technology issues and, using the publishing power of TechSoup and the distribution channel of TechSoup Stock make those solutions available to nonprofits and technology service providers world-wide.


TechSoup.org

TechSoup.org, the nonprofit technology website created by CompuMentor, empowers nonprofits to succeed in the Digital Age by providing timely and targeted technology information and resources. TechSoup provides other nonprofits with the tech know-how they need to more efficiently and effectively achieve their missions. TechSoup's weekly e-newsletter, TechSoup…By the Cup, is distributed to more than 30,000 subscribers.
