Microsoft Makes Change to Nonprofit License Requirements for Senior Living Providers

At the 2021 Inspire conference, Microsoft announced it made an adjustment to their nonprofit licensing guidelines to include aged services and senior living providers. This change comes at an unprecedented time for providers who were hit hard during the COVID19 pandemic.

Justin Spelhaug, Microsoft’s Vice President, Tech for Social Impact made this announcement in a presentation around nonprofit licensing and partner engagement. Additionally, Spelhaug provided further clarity around this topic on a LinkedIn article in which he touched on the impact this could have globally

"I am humbled and thrilled to share that Microsoft is expanding eligibility for our nonprofit offers to include nonprofit aged care organizations, providing technology grants and discounts up to 75%, as well as critical IT support and capacity building to help them with their digital transitions. With this expanded program, we estimate some 75,000 new nonprofit organizations globally will be eligible. Each of those organizations represents homes for our aging family members."

Effective July 1st, nonprofit nursing homes, retirement centers, assisted living, and home healthcare are now eligible for non-for-profit licensing.  As a Microsoft Gold Partner, ProviNET is committed to helping senior living providers navigate this exciting change.
