Microsoft is giving a charity $1 million to cover the costs of providing charitable deductions to its employees.
The $1.3 million donation will cover expenses related to the employee’s charitable contributions, including the cost of hiring a tax preparer to provide them, the company said in a blog post.
The charitable deduction was one of Microsoft’s most recent initiatives to increase its charitable contributions.
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella announced last month that the company would donate $2.4 million to support charitable causes, including a new program to give students access to high-tech research.
Microsoft said that it was also giving $1 to a company in the U.K. named The Doves Foundation, which is helping to fund a new cancer research center in the city of Birmingham.
At the time, Microsoft said it had donated $1 billion to charitable causes.
