Sports 4 All Hits a Home Run with Software Donations

After noticing that athletes with disabilities often competed in sporting events without safe and good-quality equipment, Kris K. Salisbury founded the Sports 4 All Foundation. The organization recycles sports equipment and raises funds for physical activity programs for people with disabilities.

The Sports 4 All Foundation operates with the belief that being active is good for physical, mental, and social health. The organization aims to enable those with disabilities to experience what the able world often takes for granted: self-worth, team participation, a sense of accomplishment, and success. 

The organization's staff of four makes juggling the everyday tasks of running a nonprofit seem easy, with help from the TechSoup software donation program. Through the program, Sports 4 All received the complete Microsoft Office Suite. Using this donation, staff can now manage essential nonprofit organization tasks like tracking donations, writing donor thank-you letters, and program scheduling.

Microsoft Publisher and FrontPage give staff the ability to undertake projects normally trusted to professional designers. With Microsoft Publisher, organization staff can create professional-quality flyers, brochures, and newsletters. FrontPage enables staff members to keep the organization's website up-to-date despite their lack of web design skills. With TechSoup and Microsoft's help, administrative tasks are conducted more efficiently.
