Donation of Microsoft software for non-profit charities’ computers

Microsoft Community Affairs group has a donation program for U.S. based nonprofit organizations. If your non-profit organization meets the guidelines  as described at, visit our nonprofit partner TechSoup at, to walk through the process for requesting and receiving software from Microsoft. While there is no membership fee to access TechSoup, there is a small administrative fee for each order. Also the non-profit is limited to one donation per year.

If your nonprofit does not meet Microsoft’s eligibility guidelines, or if they need to request additional software, Microsoft has a Charity Open License program available.  Charity Open License allows nonprofit organizations to purchase Microsoft software and licenses at a substantially reduced cost.  For information on this program, please visit Microsoft’s Charity Open License Web Site at
