We do a lot of work for nonprofits which is also an industry focus we would like to expand.  We appreciate MS recognition in awarding our team the MS US Partner-of-the-Year for Nonprofit 2022. 


I just discovered this community, and I have a few questions I hope you assist.


1.  How can we get access to the MS nonprofit cloud and all it's module?

2.  In particular, we are interested in the Fundraising & Engagement for one our nonprofit customer found here:  https://appsource.microsoft.com/en-us/product/dynamics-365/msnfp.msftnonprofitfundraisingandengagement

HI! Tuan- Thank your for your inquiry.  Please find your answers below.

1.  How can we get access to the MS nonprofit cloud and all its modules?

Microsoft Cloud for Nonprofit Pre-production for Partners

A Global Admin should submit a request here: [ISV] Request License (dynamics.com) choosing “Discounted Offer (Available to all MPN partners)” and the Microsoft Cloud for Nonprofit - Standard license option. Your MPN and Tenant ID will be validated and then an email will be sent to the requestor for next steps.


2.  In particular, we are interested in the Fundraising & Engagement for one our nonprofit customer found here:  https://appsource.microsoft.com/en-us/product/dynamics-365/msnfp.msftnonprofitfundraisingandengagement

The SKU is tenant-wide and does not need to be assigned to any specific user(s). Once the SKU appears in your tenant, you will be able to deploy and setup the solutions via Microsoft Solution Center: MC4N
