Cloudinary Launches Program for Nonprofits

We’re pleased to be revealing our newly expanded program for nonprofits designed to help these organizations manage their visual media more efficiently and productively -- at a reduced cost. Our goal is to empower nonprofits to create better visual experiences for their communities and donors and help further their missions.

The program provides nonprofits with discounted access to Cloudinary’s different media management solutions that can be used by developers, marketers and creative professionals alike.

Today, dozens of nonprofit organizations rely on Cloudinary to tell their visual stories and better connect with their audiences. And we’re looking forward to helping many more organizations that need the help, especially as visual media becomes increasingly critical for building meaningful engagement.

From community building to donor engagement, nonprofits need technology to help them more easily organize, manipulate and deliver engaging digital content. Yet with limited resources and budgets, they must also do so as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.

To learn more, visit our new web page describing the Cloudinary for Nonprofits program. We look forward to hearing from and working with you.
