Online Collaboration

Although collaboration is important, collaborating with others can sometimes be challenged by busy schedules, long travel distances and expensive telecommunication technology. One solution is a suite of products from Google, which are free for non-profits.

Google for Nonprofits

Google for Nonprofits provides free apps for charitable and non-profit organizations in Canada. These products can not only assist with collaboration, but with a number of other functions. Google Apps can particularly support collaboration through Google Hangouts, Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Drive and Google+, which can be used for the following purposes:

Online Meetings:
Google Hangouts
Document Collaboration:
Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Drive
Discussion Forums:
Google+

By using the same programs, nonprofit and charitable organizations will be able to collaborate despite physical location or budgetary restraints. Google for Nonprofits provides the ability for organizations to have online meetings, collaborate on projects, or have online discussion, all for free! Organizations can also create an online space for their region, or client-base. Google Apps also provides Google Analytics, Google Ad Grants, Youtube Nonprofit Program and Google Earth Outreach.
