Microsoft has announced that its U.S. employees have raised $1 billion in cash since 1983 for 31,000 nonprofits and community organizations around the world. The company is commemorating its 30th Annual Employee Giving Campaign.

Sponsorium, a cloud-based community investment tool provider, and SiMPACT Strategy Group, facilitator of LBG Canada, have created a new strategic alliance to address the needs of corporations as they become more involved within their communities. The partnership aims to deliver greater efficiency and analysis into the field of community investment.

ConAgra Foods Foundation has released new research about actions to reduce food insecurity. The report, An Overview of the Effectiveness of Various Approaches to Addressing Food Insecurity in the U.S., identifies factors that have the greatest impact on the problem, including the Food Stamp program, the National School Lunch Program, and low food prices.
