Microsoft has made changes to its offers for nonprofits. See the new price lists for Microsoft's
software donations and
discounted and cloud offers.
Microsoft's goal is to enable even more nonprofit organizations to have an even greater impact. However, it takes a new philanthropy model to sustainably scale software donations in a subscription (or cloud) model.
Microsoft's new Tech for Social Impact team is organized as a social enterprise where profits will be reinvested into providing more support for nonprofits.
No. The eligibility requirements for donated products remain the same. Discounted products have similar eligibility requirements.
Public libraries with 501(c)(3) nonprofit status or a listing in the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) database are still eligible for Microsoft donations.
Public libraries are not eligible for discounted Microsoft products available through TechSoup. However, public libraries might be eligible for discounted products through Microsoft Volume Licensing agreements for education.
Eligible organizations can request an unlimited number of discounted Microsoft software products. However, the number of donated software products that organizations can receive is limited.
TechSoup aims to provide nonprofits the lowest pricing possible for the technologies they need.
For donated products, we charge a small administrative fee. This fee covers the costs of running the donation program, helping nonprofits obtain and use their products, and providing access to free educational resources.
For discounted products, TechSoup charges the price of the product plus the same small administrative fee.
We understand that some of the changes to pricing can have significant impact on your needs and budget. We're committed to helping you access the technology you need at the lowest cost possible.
