In order to participate in TechSoup Tonga programs and services, an organization must be validated by TechSoup as an organization operating on a nonprofit basis for the public benefit.
In order to successfully complete the validation review in Tonga, an organization must be:
- Organizations must have been granted tax exemption by His Majesty in Council pursuant to Section 11(f) of the Income Tax Act, Cap. 68; and/or be charitable trusts or incorporated societies registered with the Registrar of Incorporated Societies; or be other organizations established by special legislation and operating on a non-profit basis for the public benefit.
In order for TechSoup to validate your organization, you will need to provide sufficient evidence that your organization holds the above status. This may include a certificate of registration or incorporation, inclusion in an official government registry or database, and/or a copy of your organization’s governing documents.
To initiate the validation review process, the organization should register on this website and provide all requested information. A designated TechSoup representative will review the provided details and determine if the registered organization meets the requirements established in the localized definition.
Please note that validated organizations are also subject to any additional eligibility criteria required by specific programs or service offerings being applied for.
