Nonprofit Organisations

Microsoft provides grants and discounts for eligible nonprofit organisations, including cloud services like Microsoft 365, Office 365, Azure and Dynamics 365, Surface hardware, and on-premises software. Local Microsoft offices also regularly hold training events to help nonprofits better use technology and learn how technology can deepen the impact of their organisations.


What are the eligibility requirements?

Nonprofit and nongovernmental organisations must:

  • Hold recognized legal charitable status as defined in their countries
  • Operate on a not-for-profit basis
  • Have a mission to benefit the broader community
  • Attest to Microsoft’s anti-discrimination policy
  • Only assign licenses to eligible staff
  • Only use the licenses for their organisation and not license partner, affiliate, or sister organisations

Once applied for, Microsoft strive to make eligibility determinations as quickly as possible, and the process can take up to 20 business days. This timeframe can vary depending on nonprofit responsiveness to requests for additional documentation.
