How does Workplace determine which organizations qualify for Workplace for Good?
Facebook uses TechSoup to verify whether an organization applying for Workplace for Good is an NGO holding a valid non-profit status.
Requesting organizations must be registered with a local TechSoup partner and must otherwise be eligible to participate in Workplace for Good to receive free access to Workplace Advanced. Note that some types of organizations are excluded from participation in Workplace for Good, as described here.
To register for Workplace for Good:
- Visit TechSoup to get a validation token. TechSoup Validation Tokens are unique codes available to nonprofits that have been validated by TechSoup. A validation token is a string of letters and numbers that typically ends with a part of an organization's name. Here's an example: 123a4567@MyOrgName.
- Visit the Workplace for Good tab under the payments tab in your Workplace admin panel to enter your Techsoup validation Token.
- If you are eligible for Workplace for Good, you will receive a message that your status was successfully verified.
You can also visit Workplace for Good for more information and to apply for the program.
Facebook determines an organization's qualification for Workplace for Good in its sole discretion and reserves the right to grant or deny an organization's application or participation at any time, for any reason. Facebook may supplement or amend the eligibility guidelines for Workplace for Good at any time without notice. If, as a result of a change in Facebook’s policies or a change in an organization’s status, an organization no longer qualifies for Workplace for Good, then Facebook will provide such organization with at least three months prior notice. After such notice, the standard rates shall apply to such organization’s access and use of Workplace.
