Introducing the AWS Nonprofit Competency Program

Now more than ever, nonprofits are using IT to reduce costs and maximize operational efficiency. There are nearly 22,000 nonprofit organizations worldwide using Amazon Web Services (AWS) to solve challenges such as disaster recovery, scaling web applications, supporting traffic spikes, and broadening mission reach through global Availability Zones (AZs).

We are excited to announce the AWS Nonprofit Competency Program, highlighting our top AWS Partner Network (APN) Partners that have built solutions on AWS that support the unique missions of the nonprofits they serve. With the help of AWS Nonprofit Competency Partners, AWS customers can quickly, cost-effectively, and securely leverage technology to scale mission impact and drive social change.

The AWS Competency Program helps customers identify and choose the world’s top APN Partners that have demonstrated technical proficiency and proven customer success in specialized solution areas.

To receive the AWS Competency designation, APN Partners must undergo a rigorous technical validation related to industry-specific technology, as well as an assessment of the security, performance, and reliability of their AWS solutions. This validation gives customers complete confidence in choosing APN Partner solutions from the tens of thousands in the AWS Partner Network.
