Charity technology myth 2: The cloud is too expensive 

Challenged with limited resources and reliant on fundraising, the cloud is often perceived as an expensive option for many charities and not for profits. However, many of these organisations are not aware that Microsoft offers significant discounts and grants to charities in order to support the cost effective adoption of the Microsoft Cloud.

Charities and not for profit organisations are entitled to a Microsoft grant to access:

  • 300 Business Basic licences for free
  • 10 Business Premium licences for free
  • 10 Power Apps licences for free
  • $3500 Microsoft Azure consumption 
  • Discounted Microsoft hardware 
  • Up to 75% discount of Microsoft licensing
