Symantec Enterprise FAQs


What is the Symantec Donation Programme?
As part of Symantec’s commitment to the voluntary sector, Symantec will be expanding its software donation programme to better serve the nonprofit communities in worldwide.

The Software Donations programme is designed to meet the needs of small non-profits and to ensure they have access to Symantec technology they need to achieve their missions. By researching and working with small non-profits, there is an understanding of which products are most valuable to them and the appropriate number of licences to make available.
