    Hey folks -

    While searching for somewhere to get a nonprofit discount on Cisco Meraki products, I stumbled across Telecom for Good. They offer 50% off of Meraki products and up to 75% off if you bundle your telephony. I am not interested in the telephony portion but very interested in the Meraki discount.

    Has anyone here ever heard of them or worked first hand with them?

    Link for more information: https://telecom4good.org/

    Thanks,

    Kristin

    Answering my own question, I took the plunge and ordered Meraki equipment through Telecom4Good and received a 55% discount on switches and WAPs. Very prompt delivery and very quick and clear emails from the company. I will be ordering more when our new fiscal year starts.
