Workshops, Seminars, Training, and events for non-profits
Due to the Covid Lockdown, many upcoming face to face meetings etc have been rescheduled or replaced by on-line events. We have tried to keep up with changes and our NFP Resource website page has a number of links to these and other workshops.
Are you running a training session? If you are running a training session or organising a conference of general interest to non-profits please let us know so that we can include the information in our calendar.

Microsoft not-for-profit program changes: Many charities and other registered non-profits have participated in Techsoup's programmes to obtain discounted software and other technical products. Microsoft have been participating in this programme but have recently announced changes to the Microsoft not-for-profit program as of 4 April 2022.
- Microsoft on-premises products will no longer be available to not-for-profits as a donation.
- Microsoft on-premises products will be available at charitable discount prices.
- For many, the end of Microsoft's donation program will result in increased software costs.
TECHSOUP recommend that registered organisations take advantage of Microsoft Donations before it's too late and recommend accessing the current Microsoft Donation Program if the organisation relies on on-premise licences (which NFP Resource takes to mean programs running from a PC or server as opposed to cloud-based programs). Registered organisation will be able to access the current Microsoft donation program up until 4 April 2022.
- Take advantage of Microsoft on-premise donations before it is too late here.
- Have questions? Need answers? Get in contact with the Techsoup team here.
- You can read a blog post which explores these changes in further detail here. (You need to log in with your Techsoup account to access this blog)
