Happy 2016 from all of us here at NetSuite.org! As we dive into a brand new year full of opportunities to support the amazing work of nonprofits and social enterprises across the globe through our software donation and employee volunteer programs, we wanted to take a look back at 2015 and share eight of our favorite and most popular posts from the year.
1. Customer Success Story: TechSoup
In preparation for World NGO Day, a day to celebrate the work of NGOs, we wrote this post about our partner TechSoup Global and their behind the scenes work to support NGO’s access to the technology and resources they need to focus less on their IT and administrative responsibilities and more on accomplishing their mission.
2. World Water Day
We’re lucky enough to support some amazing water organizations. In celebration of World Water Day last March, we highlighted three of them and their work to bring access to clean water to people around the world.
Check out this video to see how Water for People is tracking the success of their water projects with a software donation from NetSuite.org.
