As a relatively new non-profit anticipating significant growth we are evaluating cloud based document storage and sharing options. We have secured areas on a recently upgraded website, but while admins can post things there it does not seem to be a logical option for organization and storage of folders and files.
We have been making good use of our Slack workspace (with an upgrade as a qualified non-profit) and I'm considering an integration with Google Docs or Dropbox. TechSoup has a donor arrangement with Box for a small admin fee, and I wonder if anyone might have input, experience or opinions on any of these.
I have worked with several organizations that use Slack, Google Docs and/or Dropbox. And I'll tell you that, no matter what the IT person said and tried to mandate, people used what they felt most comfortable using.

The only cloud file storage solution I trust and use these days is Sync.com. Unlike most others, Sync provides 100% end-to-end file encryption. You won't find this feature with Dropbox or Google Drive/Docs.
Also very important to me is that Sync is a Canadian-based company and all data is kept in Canada 100% of the time -- and never stored on US-based servers or in other countries (which would automatically make your data subject to the laws of those countries). That's really comforting to me.
