The AWS Credits Program for Nonprofits provides access to AWS promotional credits, which help nonprofits implement cloud-based solutions to help meet their mission goals without the upfront investment of physical infrastructure.
AWS, through Connecting Up, will make one grant of $1,000 US in credits per fiscal year (July 1 to June 30)to eligible organisations. Organisations can apply these service credits toward usage fees for all AWS on-demand cloud services, as available by region. AWS credits are not valid for Amazon EC2 Reserved Instances, Amazon Mechanical Turk, AWS Marketplace, Amazon Route53 domain name registration or transfer, or any upfront fee for any service. They are available for monthly support fees.
With AWS, nonprofits don't have to make large upfront investments in hardware and spend time and effort managing that hardware. Instead, organisations can provision the right type and size of computing resources they need to power their organisation and keep focus on the mission.
