Microsoft provides grants and discounts for eligible nonprofit organizations, including cloud services like Microsoft 365, Azure and Dynamics 365, Surface hardware, on-premises software, and digital skilling. Please note that not every program may be available in every country.

First, review our eligibility guidelines and then get started by applying for a product grant or discount.

Microsoft encourages you to work with a partner in your country whose mission is to serve other nonprofits in building organization and technology capacity, such as nonprofit partners TechSoup and Tech Impact.

Nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations 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 organization and not license partner, affiliate, or sister organizations.

Learn more about eligibility.

We strive to make eligibility determinations as quickly as possible, and the process can take up to 10 business days. This timeframe can vary depending on nonprofit responsiveness to requests for additional documentation and country requirements.

Nonprofit grants are permitted only for paid nonprofit employees, and unpaid executive staff who act as leadership for the nonprofit. Nonprofit discounts are permitted for all nonprofit staff and volunteers. Nonprofit program participants, members and donors are NOT eligible for nonprofit licenses and subscriptions. Learn more about eligibility.
