Microsoft Tech Impact Modern Nonprofit Event

Wednesday, Mar 08, 2017 | 2:00 PM-10:30 PM

Calling all Philadelphia area NONPROFIT DECISION MAKERS - you're invited to a FREE half day event hosted by Microsoft Philanthropies, the Microsoft Citizenship team & Tech Impact.

This is your opportunity to take advantage of the Microsoft Cloud Nonprofits Donation, including the new $5000 yearly Azure credit. Make 2017 the year that your organization lowers technology costs while improving productivity and efficiency. Learn how the Microsoft Cloud is helping nonprofits, just like yours, modernize by elevating their mission using technology.

The program will address the Microsoft Tools available to nonprofits for free including:

  • Office 365 for Nonprofits - Email, shared calendars, file storage and sharing, collaborative & productivity apps, online meetings, VoIP phones.
  • Azure for Nonprofits - Infrastructure, software and platform as a service in the cloud. Learn how you can migrate away from onsite servers.
  • Power BI - A visualization toolkit that helps you better understand and communicate your work.

Nonprofit leaders cannot miss this unique opportunity to visit the brand new Microsoft Reactor in Philadelphia, named "the coolest tech space in Philly". Philadelphia is alongside just two other cities in the United States (New York & San Francisco) to boast the precense of a Microsoft Reactor. The concept behind the Microsoft Reactor is to create a space that fosters the intersection between the private and public sector. Join Microsoft, local Phildelphia nonprofit partner Tech Impact, and other nonprofit leaders to experience first hand how nonprofits can implement enterprise level technology for FREE.

Tech Impact's expert trainers, Linda Widdop and Sam Chenkin, will cover the ins and outs of features, licensing and implementation while placing an emphasis on how nonprofits that identify with common scenarios (need to be HIPAA compliant? Have an outdated onsite infrastructure? Have mobile staff? Paying too much for technology?) can benefit. Sam and Linda have been using and helping nonprofits implement Microsoft Cloud tools since they became available at a discount years ago.

This free event is appropriate for nonprofit leaders and IT decision makers.

All organizations can benefit from the Microsoft Cloud. The cloud works for both large and small organizations, and all those in between.

If you identify with one or more of the scenarios below you MUST register to attend this event.
