[help] Web services for non-profits

O mighty LJ brain, I was asked the following question, to which I do not have an answer. I hope someone here can contribute wisdom:

I have been hosting several nonprofit membership databases on our company server which is on a business Internet account and therefore has a static IP address. We’re now dropping the business account. However, that also loses the static IP so we lost the ability to be servers for them.

I am seeking suggestions on alternatives for the nonprofits. Yes, there are many online alternatives, but they cost far more than the nonprofits can deal with (generally $40/month and up).

At least one of the nonprofits has their own static IP — is there a cheap alternative to Sharepoint that you know of that they might purchase to do the trick?
