Microsoft CSP program for nonprofit

Supporting the not-for-profit sector

CSP nonprofit eligibility

There are no specific criteria defining reseller eligibility to transact Microsoft nonprofit products.

It is the organisations in receipt of the nonprofit skus that must meet certain eligibility requirements. Organisations must:

  • Be not-for-profit in their recognised legal status and operate on a not-for-profit basis
  • Have as their aim to bring benefit to the local or wider community
  • Assign licences only to eligible members of staff - defined as paid employees and unpaid full-time equivalent workers
  • Use the licences themselves (rather than making available to partner or sister organisations)
  • Be non-discriminatory in the recruitment and management of their workforce. 

Microsoft posts a full list of eligibility criteria, including exceptions. 

Security for not-for-profit organisations

The UK government cites fraud as the most reported crime in the UK, and while exact figures are impossible to gauge, estimates that the annual cost of fraud to charities is anywhere from £150 million to almost £2 billion.

Justin Spelhaug, General Manager – Tech for Social Impact, Microsoft Philanthropies

“The nonprofit sector has an extraordinary opportunity to fight inequality, eliminate poverty, protect the planet, and drive massive impact. However, nonprofits grapple with digital disruption, security threats, and the demand from stakeholders for higher levels of impact and transparency—all of which can place undue strain on IT and drain critical resources from an organization’s ability to achieve its mission.

“The Tech for Social Impact group within Microsoft Philanthropies aims to accelerate digital transformation across three million nonprofits globally, so they can have a greater impact on the world’s most critical social issues. We achieve this by bringing together the best of our Philanthropic work, technology and commercial ecosystem to holistically serve nonprofits.”
