Each June, we encourage Googlers to leave their desks for a day to participate in service projects in their communities, ranging from cleaning graffiti to teaching prisoners. Additionally, we help Googlers match their skills to specific nonprofit needs, and allow them to use up to 20 hours of work time across the year to volunteer. In the last year, more than 5,000 Googlers tackled more than 400 projects around the world, to volunteer over 50,000 hours in the communities they live and work.
Employee Gift Matching
We match Googler contributions to nonprofits they love. We add even more when they volunteer their time or get to work through environmentally-friendly modes of transportation -- whether by foot, bike or kayak. Combined, we’ve donated over $50 million to over 12,000 nonprofit organizations.
