In order to participate in TechSoup Venezuela 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 Venezuela, an organization must be:

  • Organizations must be charitable institutions or social assistance institutions eligible for income tax exemption under Articles 14(3) and 14(10) of the Income Tax Law; or organizations or associations operating as Service Providers (Entidades de Atención) under Article 181 of the Organic Law for the Protection of Children and Adolescents (OLPCA) and eligible to receive tax deductible donations under Article 344 of OLPCA.

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.
