As the name suggests, nonprofits don’t have a lot of money to go around. This may not always be true, but it is the case for most of these organizations. Fortunately, there are companies out there, such as Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT), that are doing their part in helping these organizations reach their goals.
Earlier this week, MSFT took a big step forward in reaching its goal of helping nonprofits take advantage of technology. The company did this by announcing the availability of Office 365 for Nonprofits to organizations around the world.
Microsoft is able to make this happen through its well known and ever growing Technology for Good program.
What is Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) Trying to Accomplish?
Generally speaking, Microsoft is hoping to help nonprofits around the globe better use technology to help others.
Office 365 for Nonprofits has been made available in more than 40 countries spanning the globe. Even better is the fact that the company has plans to expand to 90 countries by July 2014. In other words, they are not stopping now.
One of the primary benefits is the “no cap” feature. There is no limit on the number of nonprofit employees who can use a donated download of Office 365 for Nonprofits. This holds true no matter if the organization has a few employee or tens of thousands.
In a recent blog post by Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT), the finer details of the program are discussed, including how many customers, such as the Delaware chapter of Boys & Girls Clubs of America, are taking full advantage.
George Krupanski, chief executive officer of the Delaware chapter, noted “Office 365 allows us to spend more time and resources helping our young people because we are spending less time trying to manage our systems.”
It is nice to see Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) putting so much time and effort into helping nonprofit organizations.
