Microsoft and HCA are donating $1.25 million, primarily in software, to Middle Tennessee nonprofits to improve their technological capabilities.
Microsoft Corp. CEO Steve Ballmer and Hospital Corporation of America Chairman and CEO Richard Bracken were at Nashville's Downtown YMCA on Wednesday to announce the partnership. The YMCA of Middle Tennessee last year received a software donation from Microsoft that has allowed the organization to better serve more than 270,000 people in a 12-county area.
Twenty six Middle Tennessee agencies are competing for the Innovation Through Technology grants. Winners will be announced March 19.
