OpenOffice.org offers free Office Suite to nonprofits
OpenOffice.org offers free Office Suite to nonprofits (actually, it's open source, so it's free for everyone!)
Here is another resource from Peter Grandstaff's blog, "8 Amazing eResources That Are Free For Non-Profits." I encourage you to read the full bloghere.
OpenOffice.org - Open Source Office Suite
Also known as OO.o, OOo, or plain old Open Office. It is a completely free for anyone office suite including word processor, spreadsheet, presentation creator, and more. This can save a non-profit a couple hundred dollars per computer. Just make sure Microsoft Office doesn’t come on your new computers.

It seems like everyone thinks they need Microsoft Office, but Open Office will meet all their needs and add features they’ve always wanted in Microsoft Office. For instance Open Office can open MS Word and Excel documents and it can export files as PDF, easily.

On top of all the great features Open Office runs on MacOS, Linux, and Windows! That means you can open your files on any computer. If you’ve ever tried to open Microsoft Works documents on a Mac you know how valuable that can be.
