“Leveraging Oracle’s matching gifts program goes a long way in extending the impact of your personal donation. By having Oracle match my donation to Louisville Community Foundation, we were able to buy 140 winter jackets, hats, and gloves for children in our community to help ensure every child has access to comfort and warmth. A big thanks to Oracle for helping us touch the lives of those in need.”
Oracle supports its employees’ philanthropy by matching their personal charitable donations to causes around the world. We matched more than US$4.8 million in employee donations in FY21.
When a disaster occurs, Oracle matches employee donations to disaster relief dollar for dollar. Oracle and its employees contributed more than US$500K in response to natural disasters in Australia, the Bahamas, Brazil, India, Japan, and the United States.
During the pandemic, Oracle employees all over the world banded together to support causes in their communities. They donated to local food banks and community centers as well as to global organizations providing emergency relief. Together with the company match, employees donated more than US$1M to COVID-19 relief efforts from March through May 2020.
Oracle Cares is an employee assistance fund that enables employees to make donations to support fellow employees in times of need. In FY21, the fund provided 105 hardship grants totaling more than US$207K, helping employees recover from natural disasters, loss of a loved one, and serious injury or illness, including COVID-19.
“When my family home burned down, we lost everything. The financial support I received through Oracle Cares helped cover our mortgage while we focused on covering and replacing our basic necessities.”
