Autodesk Donates Software to U.S. Nonprofits

(page 2 of 2)

Word continues to spread. Within the first week of the launch on September 24th, over 200 applications and inquiries were received. “When I shared our commitment to provide design software to any nonprofit organization who shares our vision of a better world,” Cameron said, “I could see the light bulbs go off. Collectively, we have the power to design a different future and we are on that path.” And, what better way to promote innovative 3-D design software than to provide it free of charge to young designers in need? What better way to help non-profits fulfill their missions?
