This will allow non-profit organizations to avail of majority of standard Microsoft software and SaaS solutions, such as Office 365 E3 at affordable prices, at 75% less than commercial pricing. 

Microsoft has introduced charitable pricing for nonprofits in Bangladesh in line with its “Technology for social impact” initiative, as part of its vision to accelerate transformation for nonprofits.

This will allow non-profit organizations to avail of majority of standard Microsoft software and SaaS solutions, such as Office 365 E3 at affordable prices, at 75% less than commercial pricing. 

Most of the software and SaaS cloud solutions, designed for premium enterprise-class scenarios, such as Office 365 Enterprise E5, will be available at an average discount of 60% compared to commercial pricing.

An organization with recognized charitable status in Bangladesh can also receive Office 365 Nonprofit as a donation, or upgrade to advanced features at a significant discount after signing Microsoft’s non-discrimination policy. 

In addition, eligible organizations must also operate on a not-for-profit basis and have a mission to benefit the local community such as providing relief to the poor, advancing education, social welfare, preserving culture, environmental protection, promoting human rights, or other like initiatives.

Sonia Bashir Kabir, managing director for Microsoft Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, and Laos said: “We at Microsoft are committed to bring the benefits of technology to all, and we believe nonprofits can scale impact through using technology, building on the same platform as the private sector. 

“Our commitment is to help them achieve their mission, whether they are fighting poverty, inequality, upholding human rights or saving the environment,” she added.

Microsoft aims to triple the number of nonprofits it serves — to 300,000 over the next three years by making improvements  to nonprofit offers while continuing its longstanding donation program, including helping customers move to the cloud with Azure and Office 365 E1 donation offers.

Nonprofit pricing is also available through Microsoft’s Enterprise Agreement structure, Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) Program, and Expansion of Open Charity pricing program.
