Microsoft donation to United Way keyed to alumni help

Microsoft will donate up to $50,000, which will be distributed to nonprofit organizations supported by Microsoft alumni doing work in King County through the Microsoft Alumni Foundation. Microsoft employees will be working side-by-side with Microsoft alumni together in the community.

“We are thrilled that Microsoft is supporting the efforts of our Alumni in this way." said Microsoft Alumni Foundation executive director Marylou Brannan. "Many of us formed our commitment to philanthropy while we were working at Microsoft, and after leaving have gone on to focus even more time and energy supporting our communities."
