This post was on Windows Team Blog written by Brandon LeBlanc. I thought It was worth coping here:
Microsoft currently has a nonprofit software donations program set up to help nonprofits gain access to the latest and greatest software from Microsoft. This program is available in over 100 countries across the world and since 1998 over $3.9 billion worth of software has been donated. Of that, Windows has accounted for nearly $450 million worth of donations.
Today, we are announcing some updates to this program that further benefit nonprofits seeking Microsoft software products and I’d like to talk through those updates.
What these means is that any nonprofit that is eligible for the program can upgrade 50 PCs to Windows 7, order 50 copies of Office 2010, 50 CALs for Exchange Server and so forth and outfit their entire organization with the latest Microsoft software. That’s pretty slick!
If a nonprofit belongs to these new categories they can now take part in our program and request software for their organizations.
Nonprofits with existing PCs that meet certain Get Genuine requirements can request full copies of Windows for those PCs to “get genuine”.
These are exciting changes to the program we hope nonprofits will enjoy! For more on these changes, see this blog post from the Microsoft Unlimited Potential Blog!
Let your favorite nonprofit organization know about our program! We’ve also created some text that you can use to reach out to nonprofit organizations to let them know of our program!
