|Just as we believe technology is the center of human progress, we know that when our team members get involved in supporting non-profits, the impact of our charitable donations and partnerships becomes even greater. |
The success of our Giving Back program - which includes employee volunteerism, matching employees’ charitable donations, and disaster relief - lies in its balance of strategy and flexibility.
In FY16, Dell employees logged 811,000 hours of volunteer time across 66 countries. Their service positively impacted 26,000 charities worldwide — our highest annual numbers since we started tracking volunteerism in 2006.
We also reward team members for their community service, giving anyone who logs 10 or more hours of volunteer time a US$150 voucher to donate to the charity of their choice. In FY16, we distributed 18,700 vouchers, totaling more than $2.8 million.
|When team members volunteer, they may do so during or after work hours, and they can record their community service hours through our Legacy of Good Community online portal. As of the end of FY16, 71 percent of team members are members of this community, which enables them to find volunteer opportunities, donate through our matching program, create groups for a cause, record their hours, and share inspiring stories of service. |
If your organization has volunteer needs and would like to connect with Dell’s volunteers, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Organizations who participate in the Legacy of Good Community Portal must be a U.S. registered charity (501c3) or vetted equivalency.
Through our Matching Gifts program, Dell matches team members’ charitable donations up to $10,000 per team member per calendar year.
In FY16, Dell matched $7.2 million in team member donations.
