Not for Profit Office 365 Business Plans Now Available

Q: (from Bruce)

I have two clients that tell me that they are a 501C3 Non Profit and both of them are interested in Office 365.   How do I know whether they meet Microsoft’s criteria for Non Profit pricing?



The approval process is simple:

  1. Sign them up for an Office 365 trial
  2. Submit the NFP review document
  3. Convert the trial to a paying subscription

The details can be found here:

If you like to evaluate their potential yourself, the eligibility requirements are posted here:

But while researching that question, I stumbled across the fact that Office 365 Business plans have been made available as part of our not for profit programs:

  • Office 365 Business Essentials – donation/free
  • Office 365 Business Premium – $2.00 per user/per month – That’s a steal!
  • Office 365 Enterprise E1 – donation/free
  • Office 365 Enterprise E3 – $4.50 per user/per month

More details can be found at the following sites: – I really like the interactive tool that confirms which features are available for which plans about 1/2 way down the page
