Avanade and Microsoft Philanthropies have partnered to launch ‘Tech for Social Good’ – an initiative aimed to help non-profit organisations choose the correct technology to operate in the digital world.
Technology for Social Good is staffed by 34,000 digitally connected people from Avanade’s workforce and a central investment fund is supporting the delivery of technology and relevant solutions. These solutions represent intellectual property (IP), specifically designed to support and digitally transform non-profits, enabling these organisations to better serve their communities.
“Many non-profit organisations face systemic challenges in leveraging technology, whether it’s a shortfall of the right talent or scalable industry solutions,” said Pamela Maynard, president of Product and Innovation at Avanade and executive sponsor of the initiative. “As a strategic partner with Microsoft Philanthropies and their Technology for Social Good, we will work together to tackle these challenges and at the same time enable our employees to make a genuine human impact in our world today.”
“We couldn’t be more excited about our partnership with Avanade and Technology for Social Good,” said Justin Spelhaug, general manager at Microsoft Philanthropies Tech for Social Impact. “Avanade is a great partner given their unparalleled experience in the Microsoft stack and their IP in Dynamics and Azure are all hyper relevant in the non-profit industry. They also have a global footprint, which very few partners operating in the world of non-profits can offer.”
