Productivity and Collaboration
The Microsoft for Nonprofits program offers a wide range of products and services for organizations of all sizes to securely manage their productivity, networking, analytics, and more.
Microsoft 365 and Office 365 donations and discounted subscriptions can cater to all of your productivity and collaboration needs. First, find out which Microsoft 365 licenses are best for your organization. Organizations with 300 or more employees can benefit from the feature-rich Microsoft 365 and Office 365 E3 and E5 licenses. These license plans include Office desktop and cloud applications, enterprise-level security, and video conferencing, messaging, and collaboration capabilities.
If you host and manage Windows on-site, you can also benefit from Microsoft's server products. There are also full desktop operating systems available, CRM software, developer tools, and subscriptions to Power BI, Microsoft's business analytics service. There are no budget restrictions on Microsoft programs, meaning that large organizations can take full advantage of the range of cloud solutions offered.
TechSoup also has a range of services to help you use your Microsoft cloud licenses effectively. We offer data migration services, including consulting and implementation for SharePoint, document collaboration, and backups. We provide support for your IT admins through our Office 365 Admin Support service, and we'll work with you to train your staff and move your email to an Office 365 account.

Meanwhile, Google Workspace can help you to stay connected within larger remote teams and securely store, share, and collaborate on documents.

It also integrates with many of the tools you're likely already using, helping to save time and streamline your co-working. Large and widespread teams may find features like status updates and profiles particularly useful, as this enables employees to let everyone know what time zone they are in, what their role is, and when you can expect them to be online.
Workspaces with 250 or more members can apply for an 85 percent discount on either Slack's Pro plan or its Business+ plan.
