Our Picks, Top 5 Best Nonprofit Discounts
We’ve review all the best nonprofit discounts in our list.
#1 – Microsoft Office 365 OR Google Workplace
No fanboys or fangirls here. The bottom line is that you need email, online document storage, file sharing, document collaboration and instant messaging or video conferencing.
Plus, don’t forget you get Google Hangouts or Microsoft Teams to use for video conferencing. No 3rd party tools required at an additional fee.
There is one case that we recommend Microsoft Office 365 over Google Workplace. If you need to centrally manage a number of Windows devices and have other Windows environment infrastructure, there are advantages to the higher-end Office 365 plans including Active Directory.
#2 – ClickUp – One app to rule them all
Discount: Varies – 35% – Talk to them
We made ClickUp our number 2 pick because, well, it’s just awesome. Like you and your team, ClickUp wears a lot of hats. What may look like a complicated task and project management tool is actually so much more.
One of our members using ClickUp since 2018 is paying $3.25/user per month for the Ultimate plan when invoicing annually. That’s a 35% discount. What’s cool is they are open to working with organizations, within reason. Thanks to them.
#3 – Zoom for the win
Discount: 50% off
If you’ve not been hiding under a rock, video conferencing has become a needed commodity. Zoom, despite early security concerns, is dominating the pandemic video conferencing from the home need.
It’s a good thing Zoom loves nonprofits and offers a whopping 50% discount. This Zoom nonprofit discount applies to the Pro and Business plans. The licenses are offered through TechSoup, so be sure to check out the details.
#4 – LinkedIn for nonprofits
Discount: Up to 50% off
At some point, you need to fill open positions or recruit for new positions. Word of mouth will get you just so far. Indeed ads flood your inbox with candidates that may not be at all aligned to the values of your organization.
Take advantage of the professional career network LinkedIn’s nonprofit discount. You will be able to place high-quality job ads with more intentional candidate applications. Heck, you even get to use their talent discovery tools to find candidates you want to invite for a conversation.
#5 – Canva makes it too easy
You don’t have to be a graphic designer to look good. Canva makes it easy to create properly sized social media images, ads and videos. Need to create a print piece and on a tight budget? Take a look at Canva.
If you qualify, Canva Pro is available at the nonprofit price of free! I mean, they love supporting nonprofits in this way.
