Covid-19 has amplified inequalities in our communities and around the world. As the demand for nonprofit services grows significantly, resources and funding are tightening up. For many nonprofits, there has never been more pressure to find ways to do more with less – increase the scale of your operations, improve efficiency, and protect your beneficiaries’ and donors’ data. During a period when many organizations are still struggling to overcome the challenges of the pandemic, some cloud providers are reducing their cloud grant for nonprofits. For example, AWS is currently offering $1,000 (USD) in cloud grants, down from $2,000 (USD).
Microsoft is positioned to play an important role in addressing this pressure and unlocking new opportunities for nonprofits. Microsoft offers a $3,500 USD annual Azure grant to eligible nonprofit organizations – currently more than 3x what AWS offers. Microsoft Azure helps nonprofit organizations reduce costs, manage infrastructure constraints, enhance your organization’s security posture, and scale up or down based on your needs.
In addition to the grant, there are several tools and offers that can help nonprofits make the most of Azure – And Lighthouse Technology Partners is here to help!
