Office 365 is FREE for Charities

If you are a Not for Profit (NFP) organisation that has staff and volunteers in the office and mobile then moving onto a new Office 365 platform may not be as far away as you think. The good news is that Office 365 is FREE for Charities and NFPs.


Microsoft Office 365 is FREE for Charities includes

  • Hosted email
  • OneDrive
  • SharePoint
  • Teams
  • Web versions of Word and Excel


It doesn’t matter whether your organisation supplies their devices or users provide their own personal devices. Subscribing to Office 365 brings all users on to the one platform and makes it very easy to communicate and share information.


If you need the Office applications then you can upgrade to the Business Premium or E3 starting from $4.10 per user per month. This translates into significant savings of over $13 per user per month.
