A validation token can be used by validated organizations to get offers directly from donors outside of TechSoup.org.
Validation tokens are not needed to request donated products on TechSoup.org.
A validation token is a string of letters and numbers that typically ends with a part of an organization's name. The token would look something like this: 123a4567@MyOrgName.
Go to Microsoft for Nonprofits or Google for Nonprofits to start the process. You can create a validation token after your organization has been validated by TechSoup, and then return to the donor site to use it.

Expiration of your token does not affect your access to services you have already signed up for with that token.
Yes. If desired, you can create multiple tokens to provide unique tokens to specific persons at your organization.
