Microsoft charity discount changes

Following detailed discussions with sector bodies, supported by the Cabinet Office, Microsoft has introduced new eligibility criteria for charities accessing discounted Charity (Academic) pricing for its software. It had introduced a requirement in summer 2012 that charities had to receive at least 10 per cent of their income from public donations, but will drop this from 1st January 2013, instead making charity registration the prime requirement.

Other criteria still apply – WCVA has a copy attached to its news item http://www.wcva.org.uk/news/dsp_news.cfm?newsid=1968 or see CTXchange http://www.ctxchange.org/about_ctx/partners/microsoft.
