In This Issue…Cloud computing is a major technology trend that has significantly changed the way we work, opening up more opportunities for nonprofits to access the computing power once reserved for only the largest of companies. Last month, Microsoft announced the donation of cloud-based Office 365 for nonprofits in 40 countries, a number which will more than double by the end of 2014. Read on to understand more about how the cloud can bring change to your organisation and what other nonprofits have gained from Office 365.
Product Information and DonationTechnology advancements are accelerating exponentially, and Microsoft is taking this chance to help nonprofits more easily harness the power of technology to do more good. Microsoft is widening the scope of its Technology for Good programme by donating Office 365 to nonprofits worldwide. Available in over 40 countries now, the programme will be available in up to 90 countries by July 2014. All employees — be it 10 or hundreds — within the organisation can access Office 365, and there is no cap on the number of employees.
