The company’s giving has surpassed $1 billion, with cash donations of nearly $120 million and in-kind donations worth nearly $950 million. Now the company’s philanthropic arm continues that giving but directs it by making strategic investments of cash and technology in digital inclusion programs and partnerships, mobilizing the technical talents of employees and forming creative and collaborative partnerships, and using its brand power to highlight and call others to action.
