Eligibility for Microsoft software discounts
To receive discounted Microsoft products, your organisation's eligibility must be confirmed by registering at the Microsoft Nonprofit Portal.
Once confirmed, this registration produces a certificate. You send this certificate to Techsoup to validate your eligibility for discounts and access donated Microsoft software. Techsoup will process your certificate and let you know once you can access offers.
These processes can take some time (within 20 business days for the Microsoft step and 5 to 20 days for the Techsoup step) but there are significant cost savings for charitable organisations so it's worth the wait!
