Workplace by Facebook comes with a familiar user interface as well as a whole host of useful features for organisations.

You’ll get Facebook features such as messaging, live-streaming, News Feed, and the ability to create groups for any project.

Nonprofits also get unlimited file and video storage through Workplace, as well as the ability for people to collaborate across different organisations.

Premium features – for free

The premium version of Workplace is normally available for $3 per active user, per month. However, this higher-tiered version is now available to registered nonprofits at zero cost.

Larger organisations may be especially interested in capabilities that include single sign-on, Active Directory support, and integrations with other applications such as the G Suite, Okta, and Windows Azure AD.

With Workplace Premium, you get admin capabilities to help better manage your teams, and it’s secure — you own the rights to your data. It also includes free one-on-one support for Workplace administrators.

Workplace can be a great, free alternative to similar collaboration platforms — and that’s especially true for the premium version. It may also prove easier to adopt organisation wide since many of the features work in a similar (or identical) way as they do in a personal account.

Who is eligible?

This offer is available to the Tech Trust community directly through Facebook thanks to our collaboration with TechSoup. Together with TechSoup, we provide thousands of UK charities with access to software donations from the likes of Microsoft, Adobe and Symantec through our tt-exchange programme.

Any charity that is signed up on the tt-exchange programme (which is free to register for) is eligible for a Workplace Premium account – free of charge.
