Eligibility designations

The Esri Nonprofit Organization Program (NPOP) is designed to provide any qualified nonprofit organization (NPO) with an affordable way to acquire Esri solutions. All applicants undergo a review process upon submission of the NPOP application, which considers formal tax-exempt status and the mission of the organization. In the United States, this is signified by your 501(c3) designation and National Taxonomy of Exempt Entities (NTEE) category. For international applicants, your organization's eligibility and tax-exempt verification will be determined by your local Esri distributor as part of the application process.

NPOs generally considered for NPOP membership include noncommercial entities with humanitarian, conservation, and community service missions. Commercial organizations; governmental entities; organizations with a primary focus on economic development; and primary, secondary, and higher education institutions are not eligible for the NPOP. While educational service organizations with a specific conservation, humanitarian, or community service mission may qualify, we strongly encourage universities and other higher education organizations to explore Esri's GIS for education programs.

In its sole business discretion, Esri reserves the right to determine the eligibility of an organization for the NPOP. As a result of that eligibility determination, Esri may either grant or deny an organization's application or participation for any reason. Program eligibility is not subject to external review. Esri further reserves the right to supplement or amend the program's eligibility guidelines at any time without notice.
