Employee Giving

Microsoft employees are passionate about giving to address important issues facing our local communities and world. It’s part of our culture, and how we live our mission to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more.

Employee Giving Program

To support our employees’ passion for giving, Microsoft generously matches donations of time and money to the nonprofit organizations of their choice. Through our fun and spirited employee Giving Campaign (a Microsoft tradition since 1983), and giving throughout the year, our employees are making a significant impact.

Microsoft Employees participate in Day of Caring at a Boys and Girls Club.

Hack for Good

One of the unique ways our employees give is through volunteering their talents. For example, Hack for Good is a community of Microsoft employees with a passion for utilizing their technical and business skills to help address some of the world’s most pressing societal problems. During the 2016 //oneweek Hackathon, employees participated in more than 550 “Hack for Good” projects.
