Microsoft Rewards

What is Microsoft Rewards?

Microsoft Rewards is an integration with Benevity that allows Microsoft Bing users to convert reward points into donation currency to be donated towards a cause of their choice that is sourced from Benevity’s global database of nonprofits. 

It starts when individuals sign up for Microsoft Rewards, Microsoft's loyalty program. After joining, points earned for Bing searches will be automatically donated to their selected cause. Give with Bing is currently available in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain.

How are Rewards donations disbursed?

These donations are aggregated together along with any other donations made to a cause and will be disbursed in accordance with Benevity’s monthly disbursement cycle, using the approved payment method on the cause profile.

Microsoft Rewards donations will be sent through The UK Online Giving Foundation. Learn more about our foundation partners.

How to identify a Rewards donation?

If a donation has been made but not yet disbursed, these funds will appear in the My Donation Activity graph on the Dashboard tab of a cause profile. Learn more about monitoring incoming donations on the Donation Activity Tracker.

After the disbursement has been sent, the corresponding report will be uploaded to the cause profile. Rewards donations have “Microsoft Rewards/Give with Bing” listed as the client. Learn more about understanding donor reports.
