Empowering non-profits through digital technology

At Avanade, we care about the people and communities where we work and live. We want to bring the power of the cloud and digital technology to non-profit organisations to digitally transform their workplaces and accelerate their social impact.

We know that non-profits and the social sector as a whole face systemic challenges in using technology. They lack scalable industry solutions and technology talent. In addition, they face accelerating financial pressure stemming from the lack of affordable technology services – cloud services in particular. Couple this with the increasing need for cybersecurity and the demands of donors for more transparency, and it’s easy to see that systemic change is needed.

“The social sector, non-profits and NGO’s face many challenges and are typically behind in the adoption of digital technologies, and that is where Avanade, partnering with Microsoft, can really help. Our solutions will be cutting-edge, relevant, affordable and repeatable and designed to solve the complex issues faced by non-profits.”

Pamela Maynard CEO, Avanade

Creating change through technology

We can help bring about the change needed and make a genuine human impact with our Technology for Social Good program, which consists of repeatable solutions, tailored to the specific needs of the non-profit sector. Solutions include Donor Management and Fundraising, Volunteer Management, Grant and Award Management, Sourcing and Supply, to name a few.

Our goal is to become a trusted partner to non-profits for delivering Microsoft technologies globally. As Microsoft’s leading alliance partner, we can provide affordable technology services for IT strategy, delivery and training for the non-profit market – helping to create significant social impact through the power of technology.

Human-Centred Approach to Digital Transformation

Know your supporters. Grow your support

The competition for support amongst nonprofits is now at its highest. More and more causes are fighting for the same pool of money, volunteer time and advocacy. Supporters are much more attuned to the world we live in, the issues we face, and feel a bilateral responsibility to local and global issues. The digital citizen is better informed than any past generation and has a wealth of assets at their disposal for informed decision-making.

By knowing and understanding the needs, motivations, and nuances of their donors and volunteers, charities can establish and nurture a long and mutually profitable relationship with their supporters. It’s what we call hyper-personalisation.

The way that charities will succeed is to know and understand their supporter base intimately, specifically:

  • their sense of purpose and what motivates them
  • how they want to engage, volunteer and give
  • what they want in return.

By knowing their supporters, charities can grow their support and be future ready.
