Additionally, Facebook is investing in a new dedicated team to help grow its efforts in nonprofits and education space, with online resources like product information, success stories, and videos to help organizations “take the first step.”
Currently, Facebook is donating these “work tools free of charge to organizations like the World Wildlife Fund, Comic Relief, Unicef, Save the Children, RNIB, NRC, It Gets Better, Australian Catholic University and the Miami Dade School District.” With the tools, organisations have been able to access mobile, mobile, video, communication, and collaboration tools that really make a difference to their day-to-day work.
Furthermore, Workplace for Good comes with a special Multi-Company Group on Workplace, a “dedicated space for people from nonprofit or educational institutions to create their own community, ask questions, share tips, and swap best practices,” which is currently open to anyone who has a Workplace account.
And finally, Facebook is continuing to commit to #ImpactCloud, “a coalition of technology companies including Workplace, Salesforce, Box, Okta, and Microsoft, working together to help accelerate digital transformation and impact for humanitarian and disaster relief organizations.”
