*How Tech Gives is a new Foundation Center series featuring giving practices and trends among our region’s leading technology companies.
The San Francisco Business Times has reported that in 2013 the companies on its list of the most generous Bay Area corporate philanthropists gave a combined $262 million to local nonprofits, and that technology companies are increasingly upping their philanthropic participation. At this event, representatives from among the Bay Area's top tech donors will discuss their companies' current philanthropic priorities and strategies, forecast their giving for 2015, reflect on corporate philanthropy trends and share insights about emerging trends in the tech sector including innovation labs, donated employees and equipment, and impact assessment.
Representatives include: Microsoft, Google, SanDisk, and Intuit.
