Microsoft has updated the product offerings and rules for participating in this program. This change allows Microsoft and TechSoup to continue to provide nonprofits with the technology they need to achieve their missions.
What Has Changed?
- Certain on-premises software products from Microsoft are no longer available through TechSoup as donated products. However, these products will soon be available through TechSoup as discounted products for eligible nonprofits and libraries.
- Eligible organizations are no longer limited to requesting donated products from a maximum of 10 title groups during their two-year cycle. Instead, organizations can simply request up to 50 or 25 of each donated product and up to 5 donated server products that don't use core-based licensing per two-year cycle.
What Hasn't Changed?
- The most popular on-premises software products from Microsoft are still available as donated products to eligible nonprofits and libraries.
- Request limits for donated products will still be reset every two years.
- All other program rules, eligibility, and restrictions have remained the same.

Which Versions of Microsoft Software Are Available?
The names of products in the Microsoft program don't include version numbers. When you receive a product, you can choose to download the current version of the software or the previous 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.
