Few moments ago, Apple has introduced a new charitable matching program for its employees, with offering to match employees’ personal charitable contributions up to $10,000 per year. The service is announced by the Apple’s New CEO Tim Cook through the Apple’s internal mailing system to all employees of the Apple, initially it is reported that the service is only launched for the full-time US employees, but also worth noting here that the service will be extended soon to other countries. Let’s take a look at the announcement email:
I am very happy to announce that we are kicking off a matching gift program for charitable donations. We are all really inspired by the generosity of our co-workers who give back to the community and this program is going to help that individual giving go even farther.
Starting September 15, when you give money to a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, Apple will match your gift dollar-for-dollar, up to $10,000 annually. This program will be for full-time employees in the US at first, and we’ll expand it to other parts of the world over time.
Thank you all for working so hard to make a difference, both here at Apple and in the lives of others. I am incredibly proud to be part of this team.
If you’d like more information on the program, you can get it on HRWeb, which can be easily accessed through AppleWeb.
