Microsoft Donation Program

Donated Microsoft software for Australian not-for-profits nonprofits and charities

The Microsoft Software Donation Program at Connecting Up provides a wide variety of software to not-for-profits, charities, faith-based organisations and public libraries throughout Australia.

The Microsoft Software Donation Program is one of Connecting Up's most popular resources. You can choose from hundreds of Professional and Enterprise Microsoft products for your not-for-profit organisation.


Which versions of Microsoft software are available for not-for-profits?

Products in the Microsoft donation program don't include version information in the product name. However, you can choose to download the current or previous version of the software in any language that's available through the Microsoft Volume Licensing Service Centre if you request a donation.

You can find out which version of the software is the current one on our Microsoft title groups page »
