Do you have a wishlist of technology that would help your nonprofit to do its job more effectively? Many charitable organizations would like to have more resources, but the potential expense is an obstacle. However, nonprofit IT services can help you to discover many companies that provide free and discounted computers, software, and other goods to qualifying organizations. Here are a few examples of what you may be eligible for.
Microsoft Nonprofit Portal
Microsoft provides donations and discounts to nonprofits in more than 200 countries worldwide. Some of the most popular products available include cloud services like Office 365, Azure and Dynamics 365, Surface hardware, and on-premises software. To register, you’ll need to visit Microsoft Nonprofits and fill out a simple application online. Validation takes up to 20 days. Then, if you qualify, you’ll be able to use the Microsoft Nonprofit Portal to access available offers.
Are you satisfied with your communication capacity with large segments of your supporters at once? You may be able to do your email marketing for free by signing up with Vertical Response. They offer 10,000 free emails per month to nonprofits. Nonprofits with larger lists can also get a 15% discount on their monthly plans, and they have additional programs for creating surveys and managing events. You can usually be up and running within 2 business days, once they confirm your nonprofit status.
Connect All keeps surplus equipment out of landfills by refurbishing it and providing it to nonprofits and low-income individuals. It’s a great source for discounted technology. This includes brands like Apple, Dell, and Hewlett Packard. Everything is cleaned and tested to quality control standards, and the computers come with a one-year warranty, as well as preinstalled Microsoft Windows and Office.
