Payroll Pledge: Microsoft Employee Giving Campaign

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) would like to see a much higher level of individual giving via payroll deductions. We estimate that only 2% of BDPA members make donations to support BETF via United Way, employee giving campaigns or Combined Federal Campaign. It would be nice to see that number rise significantly over the coming weeks and months.

As such, we are very happy to see that Kevin Robinson (Microsoft) made a payroll deduction pledge via the Microsoft Employee Giving Campaign to support BDPA programs and services in Charlotte, North Carolina.

There are scores of Microsoft associates and Blacks at Microsoft (BAM) members who know about the good works of BDPA. I'm hopeful that other Microsoft associates will follow the positive example set by Charlotte-based Kevin Robinson.

All - We just processed another check from the Microsoft Matching Gifts Program that is a result of payroll deduction payment originated by Kevin Robinson. We are very grateful to Kevin and other Microsoft employees around the nation who take the time to support BDPA programs, scholarships and services.

All - We've received the second quarterly payout from the matching gift provided by Kevin Robinson and Microsoft. The funds are going directly to the restricted Charlotte Chapter Fund maintained by BETF. Asante sana Kevin!
