Amazon Web Services Credits Programme

The Amazon Web Services (AWS) Credits Programme for Uk registered charities provides AWS Promotional Credits ("credits") for cloud services to eligible charities and public libraries throughout the United Kingdom.

You can apply these service credits toward usage fees for AWS on-demand cloud services and certain AWS support fees. AWS is a secure cloud services platform that offers computing power, database storage, content delivery, and other functionality without requiring organisations to invest in physical infrastructure. These credits are not valid for Reserved Instances, Mechanical Turk, Route53 domain purchases, or support launch fees.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) understands that organisations need technology that helps them achieve their mission without wasting precious resources. We are passionate about offering inexpensive and highly scalable infrastructure technology to build websites, host core business and employee-facing systems, and manage outreach and fundraising. We want to empower registered charities around the world to stop paying for computing power they aren't using so they can focus their resources on their important work.

In addition to the AWS Credits Programme for UK registered charities, AWS offers the AWS Free Tier for all new customers for 12 months following the organisation's sign-up date. The AWS Free Tier is an offer that is separate from the AWS Credits Program. It allows new customers to use certain AWS services for free up to certain usage limits.

AWS recommends that potential grant recipients sign up for the AWS Free Tier before they request this offer.
