Rebecca Masisak is the CEO of TechSoup Global, formerly known as CompuMentor.

Background, Education and Early Career[edit]

Ms. Masisak received her MBA from the Columbia University Business School, and worked as a management consultant with Coopers & Lybrand for 9 years, and in leadership roles in several Internet businesses thereafter. She joined the San Francisco nonprofit, CompuMentor (now known as TechSoup Global) in 2001, with the task of building the organization’s relatively small ‘product philanthropy’ program into both a programmatic hub of the organization and a revenue engine that could support other nonprofit and educational programs as well.[citation needed]

In her role at CompuMentor, Ms. Masisak designed a supply chain that addressed the needs of corporate product donors, end-user recipients and CompuMentor itself. In 2002, she led her team's creation of a business plan called DiscountTech which won a $100,000 grand prize in the Yale School of Management, Goldman Sachs, Pew Charitable Trust's "National Business Plan Competition for Nonprofit Organizations," among over 650 entries.[1]

In recognition of her achievements, Ms. Masisak became co-CEO of the organization, joining founder Daniel Ben-Horin in 2006. Marnie Webb was also named co-CEO at that time, forming a 3-member co-CEO office that continued to lead the organization until Ms. Masisak became TechSoup Global's CEO in 2012.

Honors, Talks and Writing[edit]

In 2008, Ms. Masisak led TechSoup Global’s successful bid to receive the Council on Foundations' formal endorsement to create NGOsource. Launched in March 2013, NGOsource is an equivalency determination service that helps U.S. grantmakers streamline their international grantmaking process. NGOsource intends to simplify the often expensive, complicated, and duplicative task of evaluating whether a non-U.S. organization is equivalent to a U.S. public charity — a process known as equivalency determination.[2]
