Oops!

The Microsoft product you're looking for is no longer available as a donation

Starting April 1, 2018, premium versions of Microsoft on-premises products are no longer be available as donated offers on TechSoup Canada, and will be available through the Reseller Discount Program (expected to launch soon through TechSoup Canada). However, standard versions of all Microsoft on-premises products will continue to be available as donations to eligible nonprofits and libraries through TechSoup Canada.

What should I do now?

If you've previously requested a premium Microsoft product and have not exceeded your donation allotment (of 50 licenses per product), you can consider switching to the standard version as they are still available through TechSoup Canada. For example, if your nonprofit uses Office Professional, you can request Office Standard and Access through the Donation Program.

If you've maxed out your donation allotment, or if the premium Microsoft product does not have a standard version available through the donation program, you can consider purchasing the product through the Reseller Discount Program at a higher cost. The Reseller Discount Program is expected to launch soon. Sign up to receive an email about the product launch and any changes.

What’s the difference between Microsoft Donation and Microsoft Reseller Discount?

Through the Microsoft Donation Program, nonprofits typically experience a savings of 90% off the retail price, but there are license limits over a 2-year ordering cycle.

With Microsoft’s new Reseller Discount Program, nonprofits will still be able to save money off of the retail price, but it will cost a little more to order these products compared to the current donated offers (estimated to be anywhere between 60% - 75% off retail price). Discounted Microsoft products will not have license limits, so your organization can order as many discounted licenses as you need.

Titles Retail Price: Donation Program:
Admin fee (~90% or more off retail)
Reseller Discount:
75% - 60% off retail
Office Professional $519 $52  $130 - $208
Visio Professional $699 $50 $174 - $280
Windows Server Datacenter Edition $6,155 $76 $2,462 - $4,616
SQL Server Standard Edition (Core-Based Licensing) $3,717 $353 $929 - $1,486
