Microsoft employees raised record $105 million for nonprofits in 2012
Microsoft employees, aided by the company’s match program, raised a record $105 million for 18,755 nonprofits worldwide in 2012, the company said.
Microsoft matches its U.S. employees’ donations dollar-for-dollar and/or their volunteer time at $17 per hour, up to $12,000 each year. In 2012, nearly two-thirds of the company’s U.S. employees took part in the program, according to Microsoft.
Last year, Microsoft employees raised $100.5 million for more than 18,000 community organizations.
