Thanks to contributions of $113 million to just over 19,000 nonprofits in 2013, the employees of Microsoft have set a new record for themselves.
"Microsoft employees donated more money than ever in 2013, raising $113 million for 19,123 non-profit organizations and charitable causes. Last year also marked the third consecutive year that employees from Microsoft donated at least $100 million. Microsoft matches employee donations up to $15,000 per year, at 1:1 for cash donations and $17 per hour for volunteer time. More than 460,000 volunteer hours were logged last year, which resulted in $7.8 million of donations. Also in 2013, Microsoft decided to give $50 to new employees for a nonprofit of their choice." -- Taylor Soper, Geek Wire
