Microsoft’s Technology for Good programme

Technology for Good supports NGOs worldwide to increase their reach by providing subsidised software, funding and technical support.

In 2017, Just Economics worked with Microsoft Philanthropies in Asia to assess the impact of the programme. The evaluation included extensive fieldwork in Asia.

“Microsoft Philanthropies Asia commissioned Just Economics to understand the value created by our technology donations to the nonprofit sector across the region. In addition to articulating a complicated theory of change and estimating social value generated by technology, the exercise allowed us to truly understand the sector in different markets and adjust our strategy accordingly. It was such a pleasure working with the Just Economics team that we referred them to another group within Microsoft Philanthropies and are now working on evaluating another program at a global level. We look forward to partnering with them again as our work continues to evolve.”
