What you need to know about Office 365 for NFPs

Office 365 for NFP

Non-for-Profits organisations face many challenges. NFP organisations have their teams spread across the country or in many cases the globe making it really hard to collaborate on a project without a proper system in place. Without a proper technology in place, staff do not have access to the information they need.

Between fundraising and donor management they rarely have time or money for IT investments or a support team to deploy and manage new technology. Although they would like to have a technology that offers file storage and sharing, basic office apps and business class email clients, lack of budget limits them from having access to these systems.

As part of Microsoft Product Donations, eligible NFPs can get Office 365 for free of cost or at a significant discount. Designed to assist NFPs, Office 365 Nonprofit fosters better team collaboration, increase organisational capacity and reduces IT costs; so that NFPs can concentrate on creating more impact.

The Office 365 Nonprofit provides NFPs with the tools to empower their staff and volunteers to succeed in their fundraising activities. Users have access to free email, video conferencing, instant messaging, own Yammer site and online document storage and editing enabling them to work efficiently and collaboratively.

Cloud and On-premise
