Editor’s note: Today, Dan Bross, Senior Director of Corporate Citizenship at Microsoft has published an interesting look at the role of corporate political donations, particularly in the United States following the Citizens United decision.

Bross writes:

“Corporations have responded to the ‘Citizens United’ ruling in a variety of ways. Some have decided to ramp up their independent expenditures. Others, including Microsoft, have decided not to contribute to “527 organizations” – groups formed solely to influence elections, to which there are no upper limits on contributions…. there is growing interest in understanding how corporations are participating in the political process. That’s why Microsoft has adopted the practice of semi-annually posting all our political contributions on our public website.”
