Did you know you can use your Microsoft Rewards points to make charitable donations? You’ll find different donation opportunities on the Redeem page. Once your donation is processed (in compliance with the Microsoft Services Agreement), Microsoft will make at least a quarterly donation on your behalf to the non-profit organization you’ve selected. Microsoft’s donation to the non-profit will comprise the total amount you’d like to contribute, plus the contributions of all Microsoft Rewards members who’ve chosen that same organization. This is based on the selection made on the Redeem page the preceding quarter.
If the non-profit organization you chose is no longer available when the payment is made, or the aggregated cash donation for your non-profit doesn’t meet the minimum requirement at that time, Microsoft will make the payment to non-profit organizations of Microsoft’s choosing on your behalf.
