Microsoft donates $1 bn in Cloud services for 90,000 non-profits

New Delhi, Sep 27 (IANS) Exceeding its own targets, Microsoft Philanthropies on Wednesday announced that it has donated $1 billion in Cloud-computing resources to help 90,000 non-profit organisations worldwide.

In early 2016, Microsoft committed to donate $1 billion over three years in the area to help 70,000 non-profit organisations digitally scale their impact and serve the public good.

As part of the programme, the company has donated a significant sum in Cloud services in India too, it said in a statement.

This includes organisations such as Akshaya Patra and Habitat4Humanity that fight issues like hunger and malnutrition in the country and works with low-income families to build new homes and incremental housing, respectively.

Microsoft has also announced the formation of a ‘Technology for Social Impact’ group that will work to bring Cloud services to around 300,000 non-profits in the next three years.

The group offers to create comprehensive suite of enterprise-grade software and services, customised to the needs of non-profits organisations.
