Scale your impact while optimising your
not-for-profit’s operations

If you are a not-for-profit leader looking to scale your impact and optimise your operations, you should consider moving your IT infrastructure to the cloud with Microsoft Azure.

Azure is the cloud platform that offers solutions for not-for-profits to migrate existing data and apps, modernise operations and workflows, secure constituent and donor data, and leverage AI to solve humanitarian challenges. Not-for-profits of all sizes and missions can benefit from Microsoft Azure with features including:

  • Pay only for what you use and lower maintenance costs for outdated infrastructure or hardware.
  • Reduce security risks of data breaches or system downtime.
  • Make compliance with rules and regulations easier.
  • Allow your employees and volunteers to work from anywhere.

Achieve your mission more effectively with Microsoft Azure

Microsoft Azure can help you meet your not-for-profit’s challenges, enabling you to enhance your operations, streamline processes, and save on costs. Below are some of the use cases that most not-for-profits use Azure for:

Cost-efficient IT infrastructure

Optimise your IT spending by removing the expensive on-premises servers and software maintenance costs and scaling only as needed. With Microsoft Azure, your not-for-profit can migrate your legacy servers and databases and set up and manage virtual machines, storage, and networking resources without the need for significant upfront investments.

Migrate to Azure
Remote Work and Flexibility

Enable your employees and volunteers to work from anywhere while providing secure access to your not-for-profit’s critical apps. Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) offers a reliable and rich desktop experience on Teams, Office, and even your resource-demanding legacy apps, no matter what device they use.
