Microsoft’s mission is to empower every person and every organisation on the planet to achieve more.

Working with the Centre for Social Impact, Microsoft New Zealand is looking at how
technology and its vast networks and human capital can empower the social impact strategies
of our not for profit organisations to achieve greater meaningful change across our target
communities.

"We believe technology is a powerful force for improving people’s lives. We see it every day in our
work—whether it’s a young New Zealander discovering the magic of creating something new with
code, or a Plunket nurse using cloud services to
improve children’s health outcomes by connecting
families more quickly with the services they need. But technology can only change people’s lives
when they have access to the capabilities and the benefits it provides. Right now, many do not.
For them, the world of knowledge and opportunity that the technology can offer is out of reach.
At Microsoft we are working to change that by investing our greatest assets—our technology,
people, grants, and voice—to advance a more equitable world where the benefits of technology
are accessible to everyone."
