Microsoft Launches Nonprofit Tech Acceleration for Black and African American Communities Program

Posted By Administration, Monday, October 5, 2020

As you may have heard, this year Microsoft renewed its commitment to finding new ways to combat racial injustice and inequity. One way they are doing this is by utilizing their technology and partnerships to provide minority-focused nonprofits the critical services and support at a local community level that is needed to drive change.  

To this end, Microsoft has launched the Nonprofit Tech Acceleration (NTA) for Black and African American Communities program, which increases technology support for nonprofits that support people of color. The range of services includes anything from technology upgrades to full digital transformations, plus the consulting and implementation support needed to be successful. As one of the support partners in this program, we are excited to contribute our services to such a worthy cause.

The depth and breadth of the support nonprofits can receive through the NTA program is largely based on their needs—examples include free Azure subscriptions, a collaboration tool suite that has their organization communicating on a single platform, or the help of a local partner who can guide them through whatever technology solution they are seeking.

If you are interested in learning more about the NTA program, the first step is to send the registration link to your nonprofit organization. Once they have registered, a representative will contact them to explore the opportunity to accelerate their technology solutions—ultimately, so they can spend less time on technology and more time on their mission.

No company can change the world by itself. But we can do our part by enabling the power of data, technology, and partnerships to help improve the lives of Black and African American citizens across our country.
