TechSoup Global
October 25, 2013

nonPareil Institute is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit providing technical training to adults with autism. Getting software through TechSoup at very low prices has greatly helped us to expand our program to help more and more adults with autism. We appreciate not only the price, but also the convenience. Rather than each nonprofit having to coordinate with various donor software companies, TechSoup is an easy-to-use intermediary. It saves time for the donors; it saves time for the nonprofits. Wonderful, effective program!

NONPAREIL INSTITUTE
June 28, 2013

nonPareil Institute is changing lives every day. It is much more than just a technology company. The adults with autism at nonPareil learn to work together. They learn to be supportive of one another. They learn a sense of community. And they carry that enhanced understanding with them into the world beyond nonPareil. It changes their relationships with their families, friends, neighbors, acquaintances, and strangers.

My son said about nonPareil, "Thank you for changing my life." That is exactly what it has done. I've heard many other families say the same. I can't wait until we have the level of game sales and donations support to take this program national. I am so proud to be a part of it.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

With more donations, we can expand to other cities. That will create opportunities for more adults with autism and also increase brand awareness to sell the apps, e-books, and video games produced by these awesome adults!

NONPAREIL INSTITUTE
October 25, 2012

"Thank you for changing my life." Those are the words of my son to the founders of nonPareil Institute. nonPareil truly changes lives. Up to 90% of adults with autism are unemployed or underemployed, with no hope for a fulfilling life. nonPareil works with these adults in their sweet spot, technology. They become valued members of teams where they can contribute to software projects as well as help one another. A great organization that is making a true difference in this world. I'm passionate enough to be a full-time volunteer. I believe in this cause.
