Each donor partner implements their own eligibility rules and donation limits.

Besides nonprofit organizations, all for donor partners also support public libraries. Currently, the public library donation program is available in the Philippines only. So, if you're representing a public library in the Philippines, kindly see this link for requirements to be made eligible for software donations: Philippine Public Libraries

Last but not the least, Faith-based Organizations are also supported in our software donation program but only by Microsoft. Simply speaking, if you're representing a Faith-based organization, you are only eligible to place requests for Microsoft software only.
Applicable to all partners, once your order has been accepted and processed, the usual turnaround time would be at around 10 business days. But, if the payment process you've used are either Bank Transfer or Cheque, turnaround time might take an additional 7 to 14 days as these would be international transactions.
Applicable to all partners, as this is a donation program, we do not allow returning requested programs. Downloaded products cannot as well be exchanged or refunded. Once these requests have been approved and the administration fees received, all programs requested will be considered as instaled and in use.
Applicable to SAP, Symantec Desktop and Symantec Enterprise, renwing of licenses can be done by placing a request for the same product within the next fiscal year (July 1 to June 30).
Don't you worry, we don't implement any minimum number of licenses in order to process your request. So, if you happen to just need a single license of a product, then by all means just request for one! However, do take into consideration that the partners do implement a maximum number of allowable licenses to be requested. To learn more about this, just head back to the Eligibility Rules.
Though you're free to place a request for a single license at a time, please take note of the special rule regarding Get Genuine Operating Systems provided by Microsoft. As this is a special program, organizations are only given one instance to request for Get Genuine Operating Systems in their entire registration to TechSoup Asia. Hence, we would usually suggest for organizations to either request for the maximum allowable of 50 licenses or a little more than what they need to make the most of this opportunity.
On the other hand, if these are related to your Microsoft requests, you can get this sorted out immediately by logging in to your account and following these simple steps:
- Once logged in click on My Orders via the user menu which is located on the right hand side of the screen
- Click on the View link located under Order Status under the relevant transaction
- Scroll down until you see the option to resend the license email copy by email. Alternatively you can view your licence details on the same page.
