Within the last year, tens of thousands of LinkedIn workers have verified organizations and causes they care about using their financial or time resources.
As a business, LinkedIn has committed to amplifying our workers’ effect through our matching gifts program. This program permits every LinkedIn worker to access funds each year for charitable causes. This benefit can be utilized to match contributions 1:1 or could be unlocked using volunteer period at a rate of 10 for every hour. Our employees also have access to internal tools that enable them to arrange fundraising campaigns among their colleagues in each LinkedIn office around the world\.
In 2018 our workers donated to over 2400 organizations globally, including UK Youth in London,” Hope Center in Omaha, Civic Action at Toronto, Sujaya Foundation in India, and more.
Today, LinkedIn is announcing an increase in our worker donation match advantage. Starting July 1st, 2019, LinkedIn will match around $15,000 USD per fiscal year in donations for all eligible workers. In addition, LinkedIn provides a $10 donation game for every hour volunteered.
This is an important step forward for our business because we continue to inspire and lead a culture which makes an impact.
