Hello Partners!

 
Giving back plays an important role at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) each year. Together with you, our partners, we have impacted local and global communities through a variety of monetary and in-kind donations. This year is no different! As we come together in Washington, D.C., we are launching new opportunities to make a big difference for youth around the world.
 
In partnership with the Microsoft Citizenship team, this year’s Partners for Good Challenge will benefit Microsoft YouthSpark efforts to empower young people with opportunities for education, employment, and entrepreneurship. In every YouthSpark project you’ll find youth determined to overcome any barrier.
 
Spark change and donate in the Partners for Good Challenge!
  • Visit the Partners for Good Challenge site to learn more about the dynamic projects you can support:
    • Girls Who Code work to inspire, educate, and equip girls with the computing skills to pursue 21st century opportunities.
    • FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) motivates young people to be science and technology leaders by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills.
    • TakingITGlobal is a global online community that empowers young people to understand and act on the world’s greatest challenges.
  • In early June, we will launch the Giving auction—you won’t want to miss the chance to win ​one of these WPC experiences.
  • Opportunities to give a gift that help young people prepare for jobs of the future continue onsite at WPC. Join fellow attendees at the IAMCP Golf Tournament and Women in Technology Luncheon to learn how to get involved in the Partners for Good Challenge.
  • Evaluations help shape WPC for years to come. Provide your feedback and WPC will donate US$1.00 for each session and US$5.00 for each overall conference evaluation submitted.
And it gets better! Microsoft is doubling your impact by matching your Partners for Good Challenge donations.
 
We hope you’re up to the challenge! Learn more about WPC and our commitment to giving here.
 
Best,
