As a non-profit, my organization has been the beneficiary of Microsoft's generous discounts and donations for many years now. It really let's us stretch our IT dollars a lot further, empowering us to do more with less to help our organization support the people of our community. Unfortunately, we occasionally encounter limitations to what products and services we can buy from Microsoft because they are only available with enterprise agreements or similar. Windows Defender ATP, for example, is only available with Windows 10 Enterprise E5. We have Win 10 Enterprise E3 and would gladly upgrade to E5 if we could, but it's not available to buy under an Open license agreement.
Microsoft 365 seems like it could be a great way to make E5 level licensing available to non-profits, while also bundling together licensing for the other services we already subscribe to. I asked around at Ignite, and at the time no one seemed to know whether M365 would be made available through the non-profit program. Has there been any discussion of non-profit availability in the interim?

I see E5 for non profits at $10 per user per month and MS 365 Business for $5.

Unfortunately, the E5 offer you shared is for Office 365, not Microsoft 365. The other offer though is interesting, that wasn't available the last time I had looked. We'd want Microsoft 365 Enterprise plans, probably E5, but if the Business plan is available, it seems like a good sign that Enterprise plans may be offered soon.

As of today, I see that Microsoft 365 E3 and E5 are both available at non-profit pricing in the Office 365 Portal. Yay!

Steve, not sure if you've talked with your Microsoft rep lately, but our non-profit just found out that there is now an Enterprise Agreement available for non-profits! We will be signing up shortly.

Steve what did you guys end up doing? We have had a terrible time and nobody seems to know what we are talking about. Every person i've talked to has told us we need to buy Windows E5 (even though like you we have E3 with the nonprofit discount). I'd love to just pay for a E3 to E5 step up or for ATP as an add-on.

Has anyone switched to M365 for non profits? I'd love to chat- we are considering it, but are scared if Microsoft changes anything down the line you are kind of stuck.....
