Past Event: Better Service to Your Community with External Sharing of Data 

Imagine sharing files in real time without having to email back and forth.  Do you struggle to keep track of the latest document versions?  Are you concerned about someone forwarding a document? Would you like to collaborate on documents with someone outside your organization in real time? These questions and more will be answered during this webcast.

Microsoft SharePoint Online is the technology to work through these challenges.  This webcast will focus on typical sharing challenges for nonprofits and how Microsoft technology can take on these challenges.  Learn how to collaborate seamlessly on documents with your donors, constituents, grantees, partners, volunteers, and more in a secure and modern platform.

Past Event: Protecting Your Nonprofit’s Valuable Data

Security breaches are in the news daily; unfortunately, nonprofits are typically targets.  Many say it is not a matter of whether a breach happens but when.  Hackers know that you store valuable information about constituents and donors in your environment and that nonprofits tend to lag in IT investments. This perception makes your organization a target.  This webcast will highlight technology to properly secure your environment.

Microsoft Azure Information Protection (AIP) is designed to safeguard your organization’s sensitive data effectively. Data security is of utmost importance in today’s digital landscape, and AIP provides a comprehensive solution to protect your data throughout its lifecycle.

Past Event: Unlock the Power Platform – A Safe Adoption Model

More than ever today, nonprofits are looking to their information workers to provide insights and optimizations to their processes to help achieve the mission.  These processes could be for donations, volunteers, or even events. Microsoft’s Power Platform is a set of low-code tools that enable digital transformation and automation of workloads.  This platform is ideal for nonprofits, who are typically stretched to do more with less while still trying to keep up with the digital curve.  This can be done!   But how can organizations prevent themselves from getting into a situation where non-technical users create data breaches or automation creates a mess? Join us to review how to protect your organization’s data while enabling users to deliver value through the Power Platform.

Past Event: Improve your Organization’s Productivity by Organizing Work Flow.

Nonprofits today are asked to do more with less.  At the same time, their employees are asking for more streamlined processes and to automate repetitive tasks.  Additionally, with the current focus on Artificial Intelligence, employees are asking for AI tools to help make decisions.  This session is going to focus on making all these goals a reality.

Our focus for this webcast will be Microsoft Viva, a productivity tool that includes workloads that improve productivity and well-being through data-driven, privacy-protected insights and recommendations. Each workload will be described, including how it combines communications, knowledge, learning, resources, and insights into an employee experience that integrates seamlessly into applications that employees use daily, such as Microsoft Teams. Microsoft Viva empowers organizations with next-generation AI and insights, combining the tools and applications nonprofits need for communication and feedback, analytics, goals, and learning to continuously improve employee engagement and business performance.

Past Event: New Year Challenges – Finding better ways to manage fundraising and volunteers

As you enter a new year, there is no time like now to think about how to better manage your donors and volunteers. Are you struggling to share information between departments?  Do you have difficulty getting a person-centered view of the people you interact with?  Can you easily see at a moment’s notice who is volunteering this week and how much they have donated over the past year?

If you struggle with any of this, you are not alone.  Microsoft is providing a foundation to solve these challenges.  This foundation is called Microsoft Cloud for Nonprofit. This session will give an overview of the Microsoft Could for Nonprofit and a deep dive into volunteer management. Come join us to see how you can get more value from your system.
