If you’re in the market for a new job, and giving back is important to you, it might make sense to look for an organization that shares your commitment. Here are just a few of the employers who’ve participated:
Last year, Heinz launched the Selfie for Good program, donating $1 to Stop Hunger Now for each selfie taken with a Heinz ketchup bottle at participating restaurants. The campaign raised $200,000 total. (See salaries at Heinz.)
Linkedin for Good supported a crowdfunding campaign that encouraged employees to donate to non-profits. The company matched donations 3:1 that were made between Nov. 9 and Dec. 2, 2016. The program supported 163 organizations with a total of $600,000 in donations. (See salaries at LinkedIn.)
The 30-year-old cable shopping pioneer partnered with Peace Love World and Nest to create a printed T-shirt and scarf for sale on the network. Sixty percent of the garments’ purchase price will go to fund programs supporting female artisans. (See salaries at QVC.)
T-Mobile upped its #GivingTuesday game this year by creating three donation streams for employees, customers and everyone else:
- Employees: The company will deposit $28 in each worker’s “Giving Account.” Employees can then donate that cash to any charity they choose.
- Customers: Via the T-Mobile Tuesdays customer appreciation app, users will receive $2 from the company to donate to American Red Cross, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Feeding America or Team Rubicon.
- Everyone: The company will donate $2 to those same four charities every time someone tweets #GivingTWOgether. (Up to $100,000 total.) (See salaries at T-Mobile.)
The car-sharing company donated 1 percent of revenue from reservations from Giving Tuesday until December 9, 2016, giving a total of $50,000 to Meals on Wheels. (See salaries at Zipcar.)
