Oracle supports its employees’ philanthropy by matching their personal charitable donations. We matched more than US$2.3 million in employee donations in FY16 and FY17.
When a disaster occurs, Oracle matches employee donations to disaster relief dollar-for-dollar. Oracle contributed more than US$60,000 to disaster relief efforts in many areas of the world, including Chile, Italy, Japan, and the United States, in FY16 and FY17.
