Apple Plans a Matching Program for Charitable Contributions
CEO, Tim Cook, published a memo, detailing a new program whereby Apple will match contributions that employees give to non-profit organizations.
Apple seems to be too generous these days. According from a recently published memo, newly appointed CEO – Tim Cook – announced his plans of creating a new program, in which Apple will match its employees’ charitable contributions up to $10,000 every year.
“I am very happy to announce that we are kicking off a matching gift program for charitable donations,” Cook noted in a memo sent to Apple employees. “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.”
Since September of 2010, the company already gained 46,600 employees worldwide — so perhaps this program could produce a huge amount of donations. Although former CEO – Steve Jobs – is not known for such public giving, Tim Cook still encourages all his employees to participate in this matching program.
Below is Tim Cook’s full memo:

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.
