Move to the Cloud

How can the Microsoft Cloud help your NPO?

Microsoft’s aim is to build social and economic prosperity in Africa through their citizenship programs.

One area in which Microsoft works to make a difference socially within citizenship is through community affairs. Microsoft has successfully established an extensive network of nonprofit partners to support community-based programs and local projects that will enable more people to have access to technology.

Why choose Microsoft’s cloud?

Cloud-based tools can support charities, with advantages in security, organizational control of data, ease of use and increased agility.

Thankfully, moving to a cloud-based solution doesn’t have to mean retraining your staff or volunteers. Office 365 and Microsoft 365 allow you to use the same applications that you’re used to, with access to files anywhere online.

Available to thousands of charities

The Microsoft charitable programs through TechSoup provide a wide variety of software to nonprofits, charities, faith-based organizations, and public libraries throughout Southern Africa: Angola; Botswana; Eswatini; Lesotho; Malawi; Mozambique; Namibia; South Africa; Zambia; Zimbabwe.

To see if your organization is eligible, see the Microsoft software eligibility page.
