It’s no secret that times are tough in 2022, particularly for charities who are balancing growing demand for services with rising costs.
Fortunately, when it comes to purchasing technology that can help deliver and optimize services, the Charity Digital Exchange can help. The Charity Digital Exchange works closely with technology partners, including Microsoft, Avast and Amazon, to provide discounted and donated technology to eligible charities.
To date, we’ve helped more than 68,000 charities save over £260m on technology investments, and this Black Friday we plan to help them save even more.
Whether it’s enhancing your online meetings with better video conferencing solutions or getting 8,000 free emails with our email service, Exchange has a Black Friday deal that can help you get the technology you need at a lower price.
We’ve outlined some of the best deals available below.
Black Friday 2022
For a limited time, eligible non-profit organizations in the UK can apply up to 15 donated Meta Portal devices through Charity Digital, at no cost to their organisation.
Meta Portal devices are smart displays used for video calls. With an HD camera that automatically pans and zooms as you move and adjusts to your lighting, a Meta Portal can transform meetings and improve connectivity between colleagues.
Using a Portal device can also free up your computer for other tasks, so you no longer have to juggle windows to get everything.
To apply for a Meta Portal, charities must be members of the Charity Digital Exchange (if you are not registered yet, you can register here). Offer ends on December 23, 2022 and you can find out more about the deal here.
Charities looking to improve their cybersecurity are in luck as there’s an extra 20% off Avast Business Secure Web Gateway on the Charity Digital Exchange.
Avast Business Secure Web Gateway is a cloud-based web security program that blocks web threats before they enter your network.

After you place your order, a charity digital customer service representative will set up licenses for you and send you logins on how to access your product.
There’s also an additional Black Friday discount on Charity Digital’s Essential Cyber Security Pack, which you can view here.
