Discount subscriptions for Basecamp

Basecamp is free for teachers & students, and 50% off for non-profits.

We believe in giving back, and who better to give back to than the people who are making a better tomorrow: teachers, students and non-profit organizations. That's why we made it as cheap as we can for you to do what you do.

So get out there and make it happen: run science fairs, lead student discussion groups, manage robotics clubs, make breakthrough discoveries, coordinate ministries, save indigenous fish populations, keep food banks stocked, and much, much more. Basecamp will help you do it easier, faster, and better.

Details, details

We can only discount one account. If you need to support multiple groups, one account will give you everything you need to support them.

If you've been paying for Basecamp, we can't refund or discount payments made before your discount started.

We reserve the right to end the discount program due to chronic abuse of the free accounts or other circumstances. If we do, anyone who is already participating will continue to have their discounts applied. We just won't offer up new free or discounted accounts.
