Stop Microsoft From Funding Anti-Abortion Movements

In response to the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade, Microsoft stated it will provide travel expense reimbursement for employees seeking abortions and gender-affirming care anywhere in the country. However, it has a history of supporting conservative right-wing politics whereby some of the money their funding for political action committees ends up funding anti-abortion movements.
Picture of campaign

Tulipshare has co-invested alongside our users in support of this campaign. Tulipshare currently owns 132 Microsoft shares. Please see below to learn more about supporting our campaign.

Our Goal

Tulipshare and the Center for Political Accountability (“CPA”) request that Microsoft adopt a policy requiring that any trade association, social welfare organisation, or organisation organised and operated primarily to engage in political activities that seeks financial support from Microsoft agree to report to Microsoft, at least annually, the organisation’s expenditures for political activities, including the amount spent and the recipient, and that each such report be posted on Microsoft’s website.

For purposes of this proposal, “political activities” are (i) influencing or attempting to influence the selection, nomination, election, or appointment of any individual to a public office; or (ii) supporting a party, committee, association, fund, or other organisation organised and operated primarily for the purpose of directly or indirectly accepting contributions or making expenditures to engage in the activities described in (i).

As Microsoft shareholders we support transparency and accountability in corporate electoral spending, including the indirect political spending that is the subject of this proposal. Misaligned or non-transparent funding creates reputational risk that can harm shareholder value. It can also place a company in legal jeopardy. Unless a company knows which candidates and political causes its funds ultimately support, it cannot assure shareholders, employees, or other stakeholders that its spending aligns with core values, business objectives, and policy positions. Without the information requested by this resolution, none of the board, senior management, or shareowners can assess the risks associated with political spending.

How Tulipshare works
We identify opportunities for ethical change at public companies
These opportunities are identified through our own research analysts and the community we’ve built at Tulipshare. We then work with our legal team to verify and build our campaign.
We work to acquire company shares so that we can engage as an investor
Unfortunately, there’s a minimum investment threshold to be able to vote and propose changes at public companies. That’s why we created Tulipshare - so that we can unify the investing power of like-minded individuals to drive change from within.
We leverage the collective shares of our investor community
Once we acquire enough shares, we start discussions with the company to promote ethical change. This isn’t always easy and the company may object to our requests. However we keep our investors informed of progress and all communications - so you’re aware of what’s happening every step of the way.
