Programs for nonprofit organizations

Eligible nonprofit organizations can acquire multiple software licenses—rather than multiple software packages—and Office 365 and other cloud services at reduced prices through volume licensing. For software, your organization needs to purchase only one complete software package and enough licenses to cover the remaining number of computers.

Enterprise Agreement

The Enterprise Agreement offers the best value to organizations that want a manageable volume licensing program that gives them the flexibility to buy cloud services and software licenses under one agreement for a minimum three-year period. You can add and adjust products and services over time and account for changes via the annual True-up process.
The Enterprise Agreement was designed to give you the necessary agility to respond to current and future trends. The Enterprise Agreement includes comprehensive Software Assurance benefits for on-premises licenses. Learn more about the Enterprise Agreement.

Open License

Easy to understand and administer, Open License* is flexible enough to meet the needs of a broad range of organizations. After an initial order of five or more licenses, you can reorder as few as one license, so you order only what you need. Choose from a wide selection of licensed products and acquire them from any approved Volume Licensing reseller.
You receive license confirmation information electronically and can quickly and easily view your license purchase history, so there's never any question about which licenses you own. Your organization gets even more value, more manageability, and more assistance with optional Software Assurance. Learn more about Open License.
*Not available in all countries/regions. The Microsoft Open License program will no longer be available effective January 1, 2022. See this article for more information on your options, including the addition of Open Value offers for Nonprofit organizations. 

Software Assurance

More than an upgrade, Software Assurance can help your organization get the most value from up-to-date technology by providing a powerful combination of productivity benefits, support, tools, and training.
For at-a-glance information on what Software Assurance might bring to your organization, see the Software Assurance Benefits Chart (PDF, 2.2 MB).
