We’re excited that Microsoft has added Office 365 for Nonprofits to its software donation program, and we think you should be, too. Eligible nonprofit organizations can get access to Microsoft’s cloud-based productivity and collaboration tools for free—or at a drastically reduced cost. Conversion to Office 365 is very affordable, as well. Send Kerry an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and he can give you a call and prepare a cost estimate.
Office 365 takes your email and calendar into the cloud so you can access them from any computer or smart phone. It also provides for online meetings, as well as Teams, Microsoft's instant messaging tool, which dampens down the number of email you send internally. Teams also gives you an easy way to see if someone is available for a chat or drop-by, or is in head-down mode or in a meeting. Sharepoint Online is also included, which provides online file sharing, storage, and much more.
The 501 Commons IT team worked with Microsoft prior to the release of the program, piloting the offering with many of our clients, and approximately a third of our clients have migrated to Office 365 so far—and loving it! Learn more about Office 365 for business.
