Apple says it is celebrating 10 years of its Employee Giving program, which it says has raised some $725 million for communities.

In a feature Apple stated:

This year, Apple's Employee Giving program celebrates its 10th anniversary, having raised nearly $725 million for 39,000 organizations worldwide — with over $120 million distributed to organizations around the globe in 2021 alone. The funds raised through Apple's Employee Giving program include the work of 68,000 employees who have logged almost 2 million volunteer hours. In addition to the contributions made through the Employee Giving program, Apple's Community Investment team donates millions of dollars each year to nonprofits around the globe, including World Central Kitchen, The King Center, and China Foundation for Poverty Alleviation.

In the piece, Apple celebrated some of the specific programs that Apple has helped through Employee Giving, including the Grand Central Food program.

Apple last year stated that by this time last year Apple employees had raised some $600 million and volunteered 1.6 million hours, meaning $125 million and 400,000 hours have been added in the last 12 months alone.

Apple's program matches employee donations to various organizations and pays monetary donations for hours donated by them. As expected, some of the focus of Employee Giving over the last two years has been on the COVID-19 pandemic and various relief efforts, notably the piece highlights Mandy Haven, a coporate team member who works with Crisi Text Line.
