supporting disaster relief and recovery
awarded to help employees in times of need
Through the MyGiving portal, Oracle supports its employees’ philanthropy by matching their personal charitable donations to causes around the world. We matched more than US$1.7 million in employee donations in FY18.
When a disaster occurs, Oracle matches employee donations to disaster relief, dollar for dollar. In FY18, we matched more than US$760,000 in employee contributions to disaster relief efforts around the world, including Mexico, Puerto Rico, and the United States.
In FY18, Oracle launched Oracle Cares, an employee assistance fund that enables employees to make donations to support fellow employees in times of need. The fund provided 48 hardship grants, totaling more than US$175,000 in FY18, helping employees recover from natural disasters and serious injury or illness.
“During Hurricane Irma, my house sustained roughly US$55,000 in damages. Though Oracle Cares wasn’t able to provide a grant for the entire shortfall of my insurance, it provided enough for me to get the repairs done that had to be done. Without it, the hardship on my family would have been extreme. My family and I are truly grateful for the assistance provided by Oracle Cares—a weight has been lifted.”
