Accomplish more in the cloud

Deliver a best-in-class cloud productivity experience to help staff and volunteers work together in exciting new ways. Access your board reports and grant applications anywhere, anytime, with online storage and remote file sharing. Office 365 gives you the flexibility to work in online versions of the familiar Office applications or purchase a plan that includes the latest versions to install across PCs, Macs, and mobile devices.

Security, compliance, and privacy

Office 365 is the first major cloud-based productivity service to use security frameworks based on ISO 27001 standards verified by an independent auditor. Office 365 contractually commits to a robust Data Processing Agreement, the EU model clauses, and a HIPAA Business Associate Agreement to all customers. No need to worry about security on mobile devices either. You can use the built-in tools to manage access to data across phones and tablets.
