Microsoft to give $4 million in software to World Vision Featured

By

Microsoft and World Vision Australia have teamed up against global poverty, announcing a $4 million software donation described as World Vision's largest corporate partnership.

The non-cash grant, which the companies said would "strengthen World Vision’s technology capability and enhance its supporters’ experience", will be delivered under Microsoft’s Citizenship Program, which grants technology, tools, training and resources to not-for-profit organisations to create opportunities and transform communities.

World Vision Australia’s chief executive Tim Costello said he was extremely grateful for Microsoft’s support and excited about the possibilities the grant opened for both organisations.

“This partnership and the technology it brings will transform the way our staff work and collaborate, advancing World Vision’s customer relationship management system so we can better target the information our Australian supporters receive,” Mr Costello said.

“It will also result in significant savings, making even more funds available for our work in the field, where it is needed most.”

Microsoft Australia’s Citizenship Manager, Anna Howarth said Microsoft had a long history of supporting the Australian non-for-profit community, donating more than $50 million of software in Australia in the last financial year.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with World Vision Australia and providing them with the tools they need to support their employees and improve the experience of their Australian supporters."

Microsoft Australia also said as part of itsTech4Good program staff will also have the opportunity to volunteer for World Vision’s Young Mob Leadership Program that helps young Aboriginal people develop their life skills and cultural knowledge.

The grant includes the provision of a range of productivity tools including, Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013, SharePoint, Lync and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online.

Microsoft was ranked number one for corporate social responsibility in 2012, but iTWire writer Sam Varghese has previously described founder Bill Gates' views on poverty as "hot air."
