Good News! Microsoft Donations Are Available to Faith-Based Organisations


Good news! Faith-based NGOs can now receive Microsoft donations from TechSoup South Africa Programme, as well as Office 365 for Nonprofits directly from Microsoft. This includes churches, synagogues and missions with a focus on worship and evangelism. From operating systems to office productivity suites to graphic design software, Microsoft has made over 250 products available for donation through TechSoup South Africa Programme. Faith-based organisations have been instrumental in civil society and made important contributions to public life, from alleviating poverty, job training to building communities. Microsoft can help you do even more.

The Microsoft Software Donation Programme
The Two-Year Cycle: The allotment of products your organisation can receive resets every two years. Your organisation’s cycle starts when you make your first donation request and resets two years from that first request.

Software allotment: In each two-year cycle you can:

  • Request licenses from up to 10 of over 70 available Microsoft title groups.
  • Request up to 50 licenses per Microsoft title group.
  • Request up to 5 server products, regardless of server title group.
