Where can I buy 12 Windows 10 licences/keys? Professional preferred, but I can get by with lower versions too. Oddly, Googling hasn't provided a real clear answer.
thanks!

Is there a reason you don't want to buy it directly from Microsoft?  https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/b/windows?activetab=tab%3ashopwindows10

Any Microsoft partner can sell you licenses if they so chose.  I routinely sell licenses to my clients.  You can also get them from Dell, NewEgg, Micro Center, CDW, and any major IT vendor.

You need retail version or for a business, you want each to come with its own key. Or for business to have a single volume license?
Are you upgrading from an existing Windows 7,8?
Or you need OEM versions where you are building a system and selling them?

Thank you all for your input. Perhaps I should have been more specific. I think Arnold's questions highlight the differences in "strategies" with the licensing that I didnt give enough information on. Sorry about that.  I am actually looking to be able to license them all under a single key. This is for a non-profit organization and they will all be upgrades for either Win 7 or Win 8.

There are educational/non-profit volume licenses
Leew's point mentions getting them from resellers cwd, Dell/hp,  would commonly sell if you buy equipment through them.

Same goes from getting a volume license directly from Microsoft.
Search for ms volume license .
They have a portal through which you can build a quote based on your needs.

newegg.com has an open license win10 pro upgrade for $170

IMHO, you shoukd reachout to Micòsoft directly and see whether the organization qualifies for discounts, if not outright ....

As I said, any Microsoft Partner that sells licenses can sell you licenses.  All Volume Licenses install under one key.  I've sold licenses for Governments, non-profits, and corporate end users.  This really doesn't matter - if they are a partner, they can sell you the license.

That said, if the non-profit QUALIFIES, you should be purchasing their licenses through TechSoup (assuming they are US based).  www.techsoup.org.  Licenses can be obtained for a small (typically 5% of retail price) administrative fee.  That means your Win10 licenses from TechSoup could be about $9 each - IF you qualify.
