Promotion Guidance

Since 1983, Microsoft and our employees have provided more than $6.5 billion in cash, services and software to nonprofits globally through localized, company-sponsored giving and volunteer campaigns. Often, our grantees ask how they can recognize their support from Microsoft. We are happy to provide the following suggestions and thank you in advance for your kind acknowledgment of our support!

Logo Files

Logos are extremely important assets to all companies, and Microsoft is no exception. As the most visible form of our brand identity, they represent the intellectual resources, high standards and corporate values Microsoft has put into its software products since 1975. That's why we ask our nonprofit partners who wish to use Microsoft's trademarked logos to observe the guidelines and legal restrictions outlined here.
