Webinar Description 

Now that you've discovered a bit more about Office 365 and Microsoft's donated and discounted options for nonprofits, it's time to walk through deciding whether it's right for YOUR organization.

Join Linda Widdop of Tech Impact, as we walk through the considerations to ponder and questions to answer when deciding whether Office 365 is the right fit for your nonprofit's needs. We'll discuss different scenarios and hear from John Cory from the Tulsa Area United Way's NTech Collaborative, a nonprofit that has implemented Office 365 at their organization and more than 61 affiliate locations.

Will it meet the needs of a large organization with 800 staff people in three offices? Will it be worth the effort for a small nonprofit with four staff and a handful of volunteers? Join us for this free webinar where we'll help you decide.
