Helping nonprofits understand Microsoft employee giving

A couple of weeks ago we announced the results of the 2011 Microsoft employee giving campaign.  Employees in the United States donated over $100 million, with corporate match, to nonprofits during the year.  One of the most common questions we get from nonprofit organizations (possibly second only to how can I avail of software donations) is how does the Microsoft’s employee giving program work and how can I get involved?

To help address that very question, we hosted a session called “Maximize the Match”.  It provides you with information about our employee programs and provides best practice examples from nonprofits who have been successful raising funds with employees in the past.

You can watch the full recording of the session here.  You can also download a copy of the presentation here.

    Washington can be proud of what Microsoft is doing for non-profits in the state and country!  I am a volunteer for Feed Washington, which is a non-profit organization dedicated to feeding hungry children and families in the state.  I would like to know how we, Feed Washington, can be one of the sponsored non-profits for Microsoft?  We are currently enrolled in the GIVEBIG program through the Seattle Foundation, and we would be honored to have Microsoft employees to visit our webisite and learn about what we are doing in Washington state!  Please feel free to contact me us on our website.
