A Year of Impact
The inaugural Matching Gift Partner of the Year Award was presented to Microsoft in June 2019. This award honored your dedication to maximizing employee contributions or volunteer time to St Jude. Over the past four years, Microsoft has matched nearly $1.5 million in employee contributions to St. Jude.
St. Jude participated in the 2019 Give Fest at Microsoft. This fantastic event provided employees with the opportunity to gain more awareness about St. Jude and the lifesaving mission.
During Microsoft’s Give Month, employees participated in various micro-volunteering programs. More than 2,000 employees participated in volunteer activities to provide craft kits, Halloween cards, and mask straps for St. Jude patients. Microsoft gave over $24,000 in matching contributions as employees dedicated their time to giving back.
In the spirit of giving this past holiday season, Microsoft employees donated over 40 boxes filled with toys for the kids at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. The generosity from Microsoft employees who participated in their company’s annual Giving Tree Program goes far beyond in-kind donations. Through Microsoft’s matching gift program, employees had the opportunity to match the value of their in-kind gift. Nearly $13,000 in matching contributions were made by Microsoft to support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude.
At St. Jude, we are committed to providing family-centered care, which includes letting kids be kids and striving to make enjoyable memories for families unable to go home for the holidays. The support from wonderful donors, like Microsoft employees, helped spark joy for St. Jude families this holiday season.
