TechSoup sent out an email describing some of the upcoming change. They linked to this article from Microsoft: https://blogs.microsoft.com/on-the-issues/2018/02/21/accelerating-transformation-nonprofits-technology-social-impact/
Here’s an excerpt from the email, highlighting some of the changes:
How will the current Microsoft Software Donation Program on TechSoup change on April 1st?
Product Selection: Microsoft is optimizing its ‘on-premises’ product donations to meet the needs of smaller organizations. Standard versions of all Microsoft ‘on-premises’ products will continue to be available as donations to eligible nonprofits and libraries through TechSoup. Premium versions of Microsoft ‘on-premises’ products will no longer be available as donated offers on TechSoup, but will be available with the same eligibility at a nonprofit discount. There are no changes to donated cloud offers available from Microsoft.
Choice across all Donated Products on TechSoup: Starting April 1st, you can now choose among any Microsoft donated products for your licensing without being limited by 10 title groups.
Program Rules and Eligibility Stay the Same: Microsoft eligibility for donated offers through TechSoup remains the same. These same eligibility rules are standardized across any source of Microsoft nonprofit discounts. Donated license limits available over a 2-year cycle remain the same through TechSoup.
Assistance Learning About & Accessing Options: Microsoft’s improvements and changes offer nonprofits a range of donations, discounts and licensing options. TechSoup is committed to helping you understand the best options for your needs – whether donated or discounted, ‘on-premises’, cloud or hybrid. Where possible, we will provide direct access in one easy place.
New and Noteworthy at microsoft.com/nonprofits: In case you missed it in the blog post by Microsoft, we’re ‘calling out’ these exciting new direct offers for nonprofits you can get from Microsoft – an Office 365 volunteer SKU, an expansion of Microsoft 365 with E3 and E5 offers, and Microsoft Surface to 10 new markets.
