Microsoft has launched Office 365 for Nonprofits, an initiative offering Microsoft Office for free to qualified not-for-profits and NGOs around the world.

The program constitutes part of Microsoft’s Technology for Good program, through which organizations can apply to receive free access to tools and resources – this already included Windows 8, Visual Studio and Windows Server, and it now includes Office 365 too.

From today, Office 365 for Nonprofits is available in 41 countries around the world, a figure that should be boosted to 90 by the summer of 2014. There’s no upper limit on the number of employees who can use the donated version of Office 365 within an organization.
