All year long, Oracle Volunteers around the world act on their desire to help people and the planet around them by undertaking virtual and in-person projects. They support causes close to their hearts, such as mentoring students in coding, planting trees, keeping parks and beaches litter-free, or reaching out to elders through letters and phone calls.
organizations supported in 36 countries
In response to the pandemic, employees around the world are stepping up to support their neighbors, loved ones, and those in need. They’re making masks and face shields, writing letters to boost elders’ morale, donating to causes and having the donations matched by Oracle Giving, tutoring students, helping nonprofits shift to virtual operations, and much more.
The Corporate Citizenship Communities program unites employees who share a passion for giving back. Bringing them together in locales around the world, these communities are established at the grassroots level and guided by local leaders. Launched in 2019, it’s now 35 communities strong—and growing.
Mentoring, career workshops, and mock interviews are just a few ways Oracle employees empower youth to explore new and exciting professional paths. The Oracle Education Foundation’s program is a perfect example of this type of “skillanthropy” in action. It engages Oracle Volunteers in coaching high school students through multiday classes at the intersection of coding, physical computing, and design thinking.
Our employees know better than anyone what their communities need. That’s why every full-time employee at Oracle may volunteer up to 40 hours a year during their scheduled work time, and many donate thousands of hours beyond that. Plus, through Oracle Giving, we match our employees’ charitable donations to causes around the world up to US$1,000 per employee per year.
In addition to supporting employee-driven volunteerism year-round, three times each year the Oracle Volunteering program team drives global initiatives that promote our focus areas.
Every March to April, our employees, in partnership with environmental organizations, take action for a healthy planet.
From August to September, employees give special attention to supporting students, schools, and education-focused nonprofits.
In November and December, employees share their time and resources to help those in need.
