crcr,

There's a company called Techsoup. find out if your church has a relationship with them. They are a coordinator between large corporations (e.g. Microsoft) and non profits.

They allow non profits (like your church) to obtain, for free a license for MS Office 365 - and Microsoft gets to write off the full MSRP of the software with the IRS. It's a win/win for everybody.

Check with your church and find out if they have an account.

They can request a license for Office 365, for free, and it only takes a couple of days for the license to be provisioned by Techsoup.org.

I had 25 people at my church, I got a copy of Windows server, multiple copies of Windows 10, and office 365 for all the staff (both Mac's and PC's).

The church benefitted because it was all legal licenses, they paid almost nothing for the 'affiliation fee' (like 50.00 if memory serves) and they had a clean, tight environment.

Something to look into.

The other option is this.

If you work for a large corporation, Microsoft technically has a home version of MS office (that you can purchase from your companies website for 50.00 a year). It's an annual license for the software on your machine, as long as you're employed by your company.

Last - if you or any of your children are enrolled in school, the same applies for teachers/students as an education license. They offer the same thing at a heavily discounted cost for teachers and students (college, etc).

Thanks much for the tips, jodeb! Very interesting. I can pass this information along to our church's IT people.
