2018 State of the Nonprofit Cloud – Research Open

It’s time again to evaluate how nonprofits are using the cloud!

NTEN and Microsoft have created a survey to assess the extent of and use of cloud computing in the nonprofit sector. For the purposes of this survey, cloud computing refers to hosted software and/or technology infrastructure, which is shared by many users and accessed online or through a browser. We have conducted research about nonprofit cloud adoption previously, and if you’d like to review the findings from a few years ago, you can download the 2015 report.

The survey includes 28 questions, and it should take you approximately 10 to 14 minutes to complete.

All survey participants have the option to opt into a drawing to win either a scholarship to the 2019 Nonprofit Technology Conference or for an NTEN course of your choosing!

Help us with the important research that all of us benefit from in our planning and decision-making.
