Microsoft's mission to empower every person and organisation to achieve more is at the heart of everything we do.
In the UK, we want to help empower charities to access and use technology to transform how they create social value, deliver impact and amplify how they can provide vital services to individuals and communities.
Since 2006, we have donated more than £150m of technology to UK charities, giving tools and technologies to those with aspirations to change the world or just their neighbourhood.
But it isn't just about providing access to technology; we know that without the right knowledge, the value of technology can remain untapped. Microsoft Tech4Good days are aimed at helping charities exploit technology more effectively to further their mission.
Tech4Good days give UK charities the opportunity to learn how to get the best out of technology from some of Microsoft's foremost experts in areas such as:
- Cloud computing
- How your charity can be productive with technology
- Data management and how to make it work for your charity
- Analytics and decision making (getting real insight from your data)
- The future of technology
- Microsoft Philanthropies' technology donation programme
Tech4Good days are free to attend for UK charities and places are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
