cloudThing Named Launch Partner For Microsoft Cloud For NonProfits

15th Nov 2021

cloudThing are honoured to have been named a launch partner for Microsoft cloud For NonProfits.

 

For years, cloudThing have provided bleeding-edge software solutions to NonProfit’s in both the UK and globally, helping them digitally transform whilst donating IP to take them to the ‘next level’.

That’s why we’re so proud to have been named Launch Partner by Microsoft for their Cloud for NonProfit.

 

Microsoft Cloud For NonProfit takes Microsoft’s already awesome technology and aligns it to the NonProfit sector, considering the challenges they face daily and adapting their solutions to answer them.

Microsoft Cloud for NonProfits has been specially designed for fundraisers, Volunteer Managers & volunteer management systems, programme managers and many other unique roles and concerns specific to NonProfits.

 

Microsoft Cloud For NonProfit utilises Dynamics 365, the entire Power Platform, Azure and LinkedIn to help create a whole suite of NonProfit solutions, all underpinned by the Dataverse.

However, Microsoft Cloud for NonProfit’s will also come with advanced training for users as well tech support for the various solutions and software.

 

As part of the announcement, Microsoft’s Tech for Social Impact team has been highlighting where Cloud for NonProfits can have the most benefit:

 

  • Know your donors and supporters
  • Deliver effective programming
  • Accelerate mission outcomes
  • Secure donor and programme participant data

 

cloudThing are honoured to have been named a launch partner for Microsoft cloud For NonProfits.

The NonProfit sector is central to cloudThing’s core identity and empowering NonProfit’s with tech for social impact was one of cloudThing’s founding principles.

cloudThing have worked with dozens of NonProfit’s over the years and can’t wait to introduce them to Microsoft’s Cloud for NonProfits. – Robert Meehan – CMO, cloudThing

 

The NonProfit sector faces many challenges beyond just achieving their stated mission, and often feels a burden of responsibility to invest any money directly into their cause, rather than on organisational improvements.

This can lead to outdated processes and technology creeping into daily use, causing a slowdown in efficiency, as well as large data and skill silos between departments, volunteers, staff and supporters.

cloudThing can assist by firstly, understanding a NonProfit’s ambitions as an organisation, then helping by using technology to address challenges such as supporter engagement, personalisation of services, as well as ensuring business support staff and volunteers are productive and make use of the technology available.

Through a focus on continuous improvement, we can help supercharge your processes, and deliver digital experiences across your NonProfit, even integrating into current systems.
