8 Great Microsoft Apps for Nonprofits

People managing and working for nonprofits are always on the move, balancing limited budgets and resources. Here are eight productivity-driven apps that are sure to help you stay on top of your work and remain connected while on the go.

 1.    OneSafeDrive

Nonprofit workers often have to deal with sensitive or confidential information. With this app, you can make sure that important OneDrive documents are safe with OneSafeDrive, which enables you to encrypt files with ease and work without worrying that your documents are compromised.


 2.    Skype

Skype is not just for connecting star-crossed lovers in distant continents. With this social app, nonprofit professionals can make audio calls or even group video calls for free—ideal for a quick catch-up or an urgent group discussion with co-workers across town, or even around the world.

 3.    OneNote

OneNote is a digital notebook for keeping track of what's important in life. Whether at home, in your nonprofit office or on the go, your notes travel with you. They are automatically saved and synced via the cloud, so they are always accessible across devices.

 4.    Wunderlist

The intuitive design and user-friendly features of this popular to-do list app allow nonprofit staff to quickly manage and delegate work tasks or set reminder notifications. What's more, Wunderlist instantly syncs between your phone, tablet and computer, facilitating seamless work collaboration across different platforms.


 5.    Trello

With Trello, a useful project management tool, nonprofits can create various boards to help organise activities and daily work through an easy-to-read template that works like sticky notes on a corkboard. This easy-to-use app also allows you to add colleagues and delegate work more effectively, so everyone will know which tasks are due and who will be working on them.


 6.    TeacherKit

This app helps nonprofits that work with youth track attendance or manage class schedules with ease. It is also compatible with Skype, so you can contact students, or even parents, when necessary.

 7.    M8! – Mind Map

This app is useful for helping nonprofit staff collaborate and brainstorm ideas. It can be used to take down notes or even share your mind maps among colleagues.


 8.    Fotor

Fotor is your all-in-one photo editing app that provides access to basic editing tools (to adjust a photo's brightness and contrast, for example) and enables you to embed text or captions easily. Or if you're feeling adventurous, use this app to add numerous cool and creative photo effects to the images you wish to post.
