Microsoft Day of Giving 

Today it is vital that we all work together to create a more tolerant and empathetic society. Through the lens of the Holocaust, the Holocaust Center for Humanity’s mission inspires students of all ages to confront indifference and bigotry and promote human dignity⸺a message that’s critical for our times. Thanks to the Washington State legislation, a bill was passed in 2019 encouraging schools to incorporate Holocaust education into their curricula. Since then, the Holocaust Center’s outreach has grown to over 30,000 students reached annually.

We know you agree that this is an important mission and we hope you’ll join us in ensuring a more tolerant society for years to come, throughout our community and across the region. The Holocaust Center has several ways not only to partner with us, but to align your brand and show your company’s commitment to a society based on respect and allyship. 

Your company can partner with the Holocaust Center in a number of ways:

  • program sponsorship
  • in-kind donations
  • event sponsorship
  • employee engagement
  • volunteer opportunities

We hope you’ll reach out: we’d love to get the conversation started! Contact Nicole Bela, Director of Development at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
