Getting Started for Nonprofits

Modernize your nonprofit's digital presence, IT operations, and open doors to new capabilities in the cloud.

Leverage Amazon Web Services (AWS) to securely store and visualize your data to generate insights, enhance the performance of your websites and applications, and create new touchpoints with your communities

No matter your size or the community you serve, AWS can help you and your team to focus on what matters, delight your stakeholders with compelling digital tools, and increase the impact of your programs and performance of your fundraising efforts. AWS can support your organization in developing strategies that harness the power of cloud to propel your mission forward.
What is cloud computing?

Modernize databases and applications


Create a cohesive digital environment by enhancing the performance, scalability, and security of your applications while unlocking the opportunity to bring your data together and generate more value. Do more with less as you decrease administrative burden.

Scale websites, applications, and e-commerce

Launching systems in the cloud can help nonprofits better handle predicted and unpredicted changes in traffic, build trust with donors and members, and better serve the needs of staff. Unlock the ability to experiment and find what works for your nonprofit, deploy those solutions within minutes, and scale up or down to meet your current needs.

Data storage, visualization, and security

Ensure your organization’s data is safe, secure, and reliably accessible by implementing cloud-based storage. Dive deep into your organization's data to identity trends and unlock key insights to drive your strategic decisions, and use data visualization tools to share your story.

Better serve needs with cloud contact center

Nonprofits can connect donors, members, and beneficiaries to the right information faster and better serve their needs by using cloud contact centers, chatbots, and voice technology. Reduce the time that staff and volunteers spend answering calls by using intelligent workflows.
