How Hootsuite uplifts nonprofits

The HootGiving program

We offer education and discounts of up to 75% off our tools to help support and empower nonprofit organizations in their pursuit of positive social change. 

Hootsuite helps eligible nonprofits save an average of 3 hours per week implementing a social strategy to generate awareness, connect with the community, and fundraise—all at a fraction of the cost.

Focusing on social good

In 2023, we launched Uplift – A  Week for Social Good, a free virtual event focused on helping educate, enable, and empower nonprofits with the skills and technology they need to make an impact.

Featuring TechSoup

We’ve partnered with TechSoup to leverage their Nonprofit Validation Services as a trusted solution to support our HootGiving Program for nonprofits.
