Get donated Microsoft software for your NGO through TechSoup South Africa. TechSoup South Africa charges a small administrative fee for each donated item. This fee supports the management of this donation program and additional services for organizations like yours.
Which Versions of Microsoft Software Are Available?
The names of available Microsoft products don't include version numbers. For products without Software Assurance, you can only download the current version. You can find out which version is the current one on the Current Versions of Microsoft Products page. In addition, you can download the software in any language that's available.
Eligibility and Restrictions
Microsoft provides nonprofits with a maximum allotment of product donations that can be requested per two-year cycle. Beginning April 5, 2022, most donated products may be requested only by organizations that operate computer labs.
Consult the Microsoft eligibility guidelines page to review your organization's eligibility to participate in this program.
Microsoft products offered through TechSoup South Africa are perpetually licensed products. When you request a donated or discounted perpetually licensed product through TechSoup South Africa, you're actually requesting a license, not the product itself.
To obtain perpetually licensed products without Software Assurance, you'll use the Microsoft 365 admin center. To obtain perpetually licensed products with Software Assurance, you'll use the Volume Licensing Server Center (VLSC).
