Did you miss the news? On September 26, 2016, Microsoft announced at its annual Microsoft Ignite event that as part of its Public Cloud for the Public Good campaign that it will be providing a recurring $5,000 credit to qualified nonprofit organizations and users as it strives to bring 70,000 nonprofits to the cloud over the next three years.
On the same day, we shared a blog highlighting the eligibility, available products, and key takeaways from the announcement.
Today, we would like to invite you to a free event on November 16 that shares much more on what nonprofit leaders need to know about the credit, why this is so important as you move to make smarter decisions in the cloud, and how you can make the most of the credit for years to come.
What Nonprofit Leaders Need to Know Before Taking Advantage of Microsoft’s $5,000 Azure Credit for Nonprofits
Available for the complete portfolio of Azure services, Microsoft will provide a $5000 annual credit for eligible nonprofits who apply via Microsoft and who register through its validation and certification partner TechSoup.
This is where it gets a bit tricky, as navigating the eligibility and sign up process can be a bit complicated. Microsoft holds nonprofits to very stringent standards of organizational eligibility, mission eligibility, and anti-discrimination policies, and proving that your organization meets all three criteria requires planning and execution in order to avoid hassles or credit cancellations in the future.
Meet Jeremy Pitman, Microsoft Philanthropies Cloud Services Program Manager and Creator of the $5,000 Azure Credit for Nonprofits
To help nonprofit leaders to manage the registration process, the team at Wipfli/Brittenford has secured a spot with one of the creators and leaders of the program, Jeremy Pitman, Microsoft Philanthropies Cloud Services Program Manager, who will be able to walk you through the details, eligibility, and features.
Join Brittenford Systems and Microsoft to Discuss the Azure Credit on 11/16
In this complimentary webinar, you will hear from Jeremy Pitman, Microsoft Philanthropies Cloud Services Program Manager, and the creator of that credit, as he discusses further details, eligibility requirements, Microsoft Azure services, features, benefits and more. Along with him, Ryan Risley, Chief Technology Officer at Wipfli LLP, will guide you through the sign up process to ensure you reap its benefits.
