Media for Nonprofits and NGOs

Nonprofit (NPOs) and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) use video to build trust in their brands, inspire donors and volunteers, and educate their supporters about mission and fundraising needs. Calls to action alongside videos are critical capabilities in fundraising efforts.

AWS media solutions enable nonprofit and non-governmental organizations to stream live and on-demand video to any size audience while paying for only the services used. Solutions can be as lightweight as a range of purpose-built AWS services or can be provided as turnkey, fully managed partner offerings with integrated fundraising capabilities.
