Qualified nonprofits can receive Office 365 Nonprofit E1 or Office 365 Nonprofit Business Essentials as a donation or they can upgrade to the advanced features in Office 365 Nonprofit E3 or Office 365 Nonprofit Business Premium at a significant discount.

New Office 365 customers: Start by signing up for the free E3 trial for up to 25 users. During your free trial, we’ll validate your organization as a qualified nonprofit. After your organization has been validated, you can receive Nonprofit E1 or Nonprofit Business Essentials as a donation, or you can switch to Nonprofit E3 or Nonprofit Business Premium at a significant discount and be able to add more users. Your organization will not be automatically charged at the end of the trial period.

Existing Office 365 customers (includes those using other Office 365 trials or business offers): To sign up for the free trial, contact a Microsoft Support representative. Existing customers cannot add the Office 365 Nonprofit trials to their account. Your Microsoft Support representative will help you determine your eligibility and provide the information you need to move to the nonprofit option and start the free trial. Your organization will not be automatically charged at the end of the trial period.

To qualify for Office 365 for Nonprofits, you must hold recognized charitable status in your country. You will be required to sign a contract and attest that you are an eligible nonprofit.
