Apple’s ‘Matching Gift’ program, in which the company matches employees’ charitable donations, has now been expanded to include part time employees as well, MacGeneration┬áreports.

Microsoft operates a similar scheme, but instead of the donation limit being $10,000, as it is with Apple, Microsoft have a $12,000 ceiling. Tim Cook has also promised that Apple employees abroad will be the next to join the scheme.

As of the 11th of November 2011, Apple reported having received $1.3 million in donations, making a donation total of $2.6 million.
