3 Companies That Are Doing Philanthropy Right

  1. 1. COMPANIES THAT ARE DOING PHILANTHROPY RIGHT 3
  2. 2. The  research  is  clear  —  consumers  care   more  and  more  about  companies’ SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
  3. 3. Philanthropy  is  just  one  part  of  being  a   socially  responsible  company. But  it’s  a  highly  visible  part  that’s   easy  to  quan>fy  and  compare. So  let’s  do  exactly  that.
  4. 4. Here  are  3  companies  that  are   pioneers  in  their  corporate   philanthropy  efforts:
  5. 5. Bill  Gates  is  almost  as  famous   for  his  charitable  efforts  as  he   is  for  founding  MicrosoG.
  6. 6. MicrosoG  clearly  embodies  those  same   values.  Since  1983,  the  company  and  its   employees  have  donated  a  total  of  $6.5   billion,  including  cash,  services,  and   soGware. $6.5  BILLION!
  7. 7. FedEx  may  be  great  at  delivering  mail  and   packages.  But  they’re  also  great  at   volunteering  in  the  community.
  8. 8. FedEx  focuses  its  efforts  in   three  main  areas: • emergency  and  disaster  relief • environmental  sustainability • child  pedestrian  safety
  9. 9. When  it  comes  to  disaster  relief,  Fedex  has   been  a  big  help  in  dona>ng  to  the  places   that  need  it  most. They’ve  shipped  humanitarian  goods  to  Ethiopia,   sent  shipments  to  help  tsunami  vic>ms  in  Japan,  and   donated  air  supply  flights  in  response  to  the   Somalian  famine.
  10. 10. Intel  is  no  slouch  either.  The  Intel  Founda>on   contributes  millions  of  dollars  every  year  for   educa>on  grants,  disaster  relief  efforts,  and  local   community  programs.
  11. 11. More  than  40%  of  Intel’s  employees  volunteer   together,  dona>ng  thousands  of  hours  each  year. From  1996-­‐2012,  Intel  employees  have  logged   over  7.5  million  hours  of  volunteer  work  and  over   $49.5  million  in  employee  volunteer  matching   grants.
