IMPORTANT: Please read below before requesting a donation of Get Genuine products!

The Microsoft Get Genuine Windows Agreement for Small and Medium Organizations offers full Windows operating systems, not
upgrades, to nonprofits and public libraries who find themselves out of compliance with software licensing because of software
piracy or other licensing issues.

This donation provides a full Windows Pro operating system license through the Get Genuine program to organizations that
meet the eligibility criteria below. You should request one license for each computer on which you will install.

Which Versions of This Software Are Available?

The following options are available for Windows when you download this product:   

  • All languages
  • 32-bit or 64-bit

You can choose to download the current version only of the software in any language that's available through the
Microsoft Volume Licensing Service Center if you request this product.

When Would I Need This?

This donation is intended for, and works only when, an organization has an existing

PC with one of the following operating systems installed on it:

  • Counterfeit, pirated, or otherwise illegal, unlicensed, or improperly licensed Windows operating system
  • The standard edition of Windows 10
  • The standard edition of Windows 8 or 8.1
  • Home Premium, Home Basic, or Starter editions of Windows 7 or Windows Vista
  • Home or Starter editions of Windows XP
  • Linux, FreeDOS, or other operating system

Once computers have genuine Windows, users can keep their current operating system up-to-date with the latest service packs and security updates by downloading them with Windows Update.

Benefits for Organizations

You should consider requesting this product if you need to install the latest Windows operating system on a PC that falls under one of the licensing scenarios described above.

You can use Windows Pro to:

  • Protect computers from viruses and other malware with Windows Defender
  • Support a touch-screen interface when working with individuals who cannot use a traditional mouse and keyboard
  • Restore malfunctioning computers to the base installation with Reset and Refresh functions
  • More easily switch between and access additional display languages in a multilingual environment

Special Rules for Get Genuine Product Requests

  • Eligible organizations may place only one request ever for Get Genuine products.
  • Requests for Get Genuine products may not contain any other products.
  • During check-out, the Get Genuine Windows Agreement for Small and Medium Organizations must be accepted on behalf of the organization.

Since Get Genuine products are part of the Windows Desktop Operating Systems title group, an organization's request for
them will reduce the number of operating system
products it may request in its current two-year donation cycle.

Software Assurance Not Included

Get Genuine products do not

include the
Software Assurance
benefits that come with most other Microsoft software donations. If an organization installs a Get Genuine product, that
product will not have the benefit of receiving a free upgrade to a newer version of Windows when it is released in the future.
However, the Get Genuine product will provide a computer with a legal base operating system upon which Windows upgrade products
that include Software Assurance benefits offered through TechSoup Canada can be installed. Additionally, organizations that
request Get Genuine products will be able to downgrade their donation to the most recent previous Windows OS versions at
no cost through the Microsoft Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC).

Windows 32-bit and 64-bit

The 32-bit version of Windows operates on a computer with a 32-bit processor and 32-bit drivers. The 64-bit version operates
on a computer with a 64-bit processor and 64-bit drivers. For more information, see
Do I have a 32 or 64 bit system? How can I find out?
Do I Need the 32-Bit or the 64-Bit Version?

Important Volume Licensing Information

With Windows, your organization can choose between two types of volume license keys for product activation: a Key Management Service (KMS) license key or a Multiple Activation Key (MAK). A Key Management Service (KMS) key for Windows is available to your organization by default on the Microsoft Volume Licensing website; that is, this is the only type of key you will see unless you request a MAK.

A KMS key requires at least 25 computers on a network for activation. If your organization has fewer than 25 computers, you should request a MAK from the Volume Licensing website after receiving this product. For information about obtaining a MAK or deciding which type of key to use, see TechSoup's Guide to Microsoft Volume Licensing Activation Methods.

Choose Carefully

The administrative fee for this Get Genuine product is not refundable, and the product cannot be exchanged.

Microsoft will send licensing information to the organizational email address on your account. You must verify that the
organizational email is correct on the

to update it BEFORE completing your donation request.

Installing this product requires you to
download the software from the Volume Licensing Service Centre and enter a license key. You can download any available version or language for your product.
