Microsoft UK's aim is to build social and economic prosperity in the UK through their citizenship programmes.



One area in which Microsoft works to make a difference socially within Citizenship is through Community Affairs. Microsoft has successfully established an extensive network of non-profit partners to support community-based programmes and local projects that will enable more people to have access to technology. They help various major charity projects both financially and through gifts in kind. In addition, they support the investment of their employees in the community.

As part of Microsoft's Affordable Access to Computing programme, Microsoft operates the Microsoft Software Donations programme through Technology Trust's tt-exchange programme, providing support and software donations to registered charities in the UK.

There, you can learn about the quantity of products an organisation can request, special rules for software installed by public libraries, specific procedures to follow for returns, and an overview of the Volume Licensing programme.

We'd also encourage you to check out our guide to Software Assurance, which explains more about the extra benefits you receive and how you can use and reuse them.
