My colleague, Brier Dudley, is at a Microsoft event celebrating the 30th anniversary of the company’s employee giving campaign.

The company announced at the event that its employees, together with the company’s matching grants program, has donated $1 billion to nonprofits over the years.

Dudley’s report is here.
