Is Your Non-profit Organization paying for Office365 or Microsoft Exchange?
Microsoft offers their software and subscription services to qualified nonprofits at a fraction of the full purchase price.
Office365 hosted Exchange (email) is free for up to 200 users. Enterprise-level subscriptions include desktop software for Office 2016, SharePoint, Microsoft Planner and a whole host of other tools. These tools are especially useful for charitable and educational organizations with limited budgets, are available for as little as $2-$4 per user, per month.
Your first step is to register your organization with TechSoup (www.techsoup.org). Do that today, even if the Microsoft offering isn’t top of your list. TechSoup administers the charitable programs for most software, hardware and technical services companies. They are a one-stop shop for everything from antivirus to fundraising software, and even cell phones. "TechSoup's mission is to build a dynamic bridge that enables design and implementation of technology solutions for a more equitable planet." Do not buy software of any kind for a non-profit organization without checking TechSoup first. Registration is free and only takes a few minutes.
The next steps for Microsoft licensing are a little more involved – and different if you are already a subscriber - but you can be up and running in just a few days in most cases. Our River Run Insight/Application Services Specialists are experienced with the process and are happy to provide information or walk you through it.
Do not miss out on this terrific benefit for your organization. Our Insight/Application Services Group will help you get started, and can also provide consultation, installation, configuration, support and training to help you maximize the benefits of the extensive Microsoft Office365 for Non-profits offering.
