Apple Giving has raised $365 million for global nonprofit organizations

On its Newsroom page, Apple is highlighting how Apple volunteers are helping to “transform lives.” 

For every hour an employee gives, or dollar they donate to a worthy cause, Apple provides matching funds for both. In 2018, that added up to more than a quarter of a million hours volunteered and more than $125 million donated to organizations around the world. Since it launched eight years ago, Apple’s Giving program has raised more than $365 million for nonprofits around the world

That includes China, where Apple is one of the only global companies matching employee donations. Thirty-two Chinese charitable organizations are now eligible to receive funds, including the China Foundation for Poverty Alleviation, which aided more than 175,000 people across 24 provinces with disaster relief and preparedness in 2018 alone.
