About Microsoft in Atlanta

In the state of Georgia, Microsoft works with more than 3800 partner companies that build technology tools and services on the Microsoft platform, creating jobs and revenue in the Peach State. Microsoft is dedicated to helping people achieve their full potential, and believes it has a responsibility to apply its expertise in software to serve individuals, especially in underserved communities. Microsoft supports nonprofit organizations with technology grants and curriculum to promote workforce development and encourage young people to pursue science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) careers. For example, Microsoft’s Elevate America program has provided thousands of people, including veterans, gain essential technology and life skills necessary for employment.

Through the Microsoft employee community engagement programs, Microsoft works to mobilize the skills, knowledge, and volunteer time of its more than 350 Georgia employees to help achieve a shared vision of creating social and economic opportunities in communities worldwide. In Georgia, Microsoft has matched its employee gifts of more than $7.8 million in cash, software and time benefitting local non-profits.

Microsoft prides itself on being an active member of the community, and, since 2003, has given charitable donations totaling more than $70 million in cash, curriculum and software in the state of Georgia.
