Wanted to pass along a way that your church or non-profit can save some serious dough when it comes to buying software or hardware. Someone tipped me off to this a few months ago, and it has meant big savings for my ministry area at cedar creek. We have setup a non-profit pricing account with CDW.com. I bought the Adobe CS4 Web suite and After Effects CS4 and saved over a grand…..that’s for the full version, not just an upgrade.
The way it works is that you complete a credit application (financial person can do that for you) and submit a copy of the letter/form stating your non profit status. Once approved, you go to their website, look for what you want, send over the cdw product number(s) that you want a quote for. Your sales rep. sends back the quote at non profit pricing, you sign/approve, items are shipped, they bill you. They sell Apple products too. Any kind of electronic you can imagine, they can usually get their hands on unless it is higher profile items like high end projectors or something. Here’s the link to the non-profit section or you can call them at 800.750.4239
