Not For Profit (NFP) licensing through CSP

Microsoft has released Not-For-Profit products available via CSP. This is not available to existing Office 365 tenants directly.

If your NFP customer has a tenant which was directly approved for CSP, then you can now move them to rhipe CSP licensing by following the standard tenant transitioning process today.

The following are the processes for different NFP customer scenarios.

Scenario 1: NFP customer with no Microsoft Tenant

  1. Customer must register as NFP with Microsoft at www.microsoft.com/nonprofits 
  2. Microsoft will either approve or deny the Non-Profit application (can take up to up to 3 weeks). Once approved, a tenant is created as a part of the application approval process.
  3. You transition the NFP tenant to rhipe and add NFP SKUs.

Scenario 2: NFP customer with existing Microsoft tenant already tagged as NFP

  1. Transition the NFP tenant to rhipe and add NFP SKUs.

Scenario 3: NFP customer with existing Microsoft tenant NOT tagged as NFP

  1. Customer must register as NFP with Microsoft at www.microsoft.com/nonprofits 
  2. Microsoft will either approve or deny the Non-Profit application (can take up to up to 3 weeks). Once approved, a tenant is created as a part of the application approval process.
  3. Go to Contact Us and submit request for updating existing tenant for nonprofit status. Customer needs to provide the both new and existing tenant information to Microsoft. They will then enable the move of the NFP status from the newly created tenant to the existing tenant.
  4. You can then transition the existing tenant to rhipe and add NFP SKUs.

If the customer is already licensed with NFP products, there is no new process or no special step to remember. Just remember that the tenant must have the NFP status tagged on it or the order provisioning will fail.
