Let us discuss the aspects around the NPO licensing. NPO licensing is for NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS. There is process to qualify for this. With the mount of fraud happening today, verifications and validations needs to be at the highest. It is a simple 5 step process to get the status from Microsoft. Let us go through the process of obtaining an NPO status with Microsoft.
Step 1: Ensure that you read through the,“Eligibility”,page from Microsoft.
Step 2: To register, it is not the standard portal, you have to the Microsoft NonProfit Portal.
Step 3: Microsoft has their own, “Eligibility Validation Partner”. You will be contacted by them for additional and supporting information. The most important part is to note that this process can take up to 20 business days after submitting your application. It is important to plan your roll out.
Step 4: How do you follow up on the process? There is a web site which you can view your status.
Step 5: Once the validation process is completed, you will receive an email with the results. Upon successfully achieving the status, you can then log back into “Step 2” link. There will be offers there relating to NPO licensing and available licensing.
