Microsoft’s Employee Giving Program raised a record $125 million for nonprofits and schools around the world last year. This $125 million figure includes the company match of employee contributions. Microsoft employees increased their support through time, money and talent by $8 million, marking the greatest year-over-year increase in the program’s history.
We celebrate the work of our nonprofit and education partners at the same time as we share our Employee Giving results, because they have inspired Microsoft employees to do more and give more. In fact, this year the participation rate for our Employee Giving Program hit an all-time high of 71 percent. Today we celebrate with our employees as well. We believe that they donate more time, talent and money because our program enables them to help address the causes they care about most. And their giving supported a very broad spectrum of local and global causes, among them humanitarian relief, health, human services and housing, education, arts and culture, agriculture, nutrition and the environment.
