Apple Starts Program to Match Employees' Charitable Donations
Apple released an internal e-mail today from Tim Cook to Apple employees highlighting a new charitable matching program. Under the program Apple will match charitable donations of its full-time employees up to $10,000 a year. Thus far the program is only for U.S. based employees, but there are plans to expand the program in the future.
I am very happy to announce that we are kicking off a matching gift program for charitable donations. We are all really inspired by the generosity of our co-workers who give back to the community and this program is going to help that individual giving go even farther.
Starting September 15, when you give money to a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, Apple will match your gift dollar-for-dollar, up to $10,000 annually. This program will be for full-time employees in the US at first, and we'll expand it to other parts of the world over time.
Thank you all for working so hard to make a difference, both here at Apple and in the lives of others. I am incredibly proud to be part of this team.
If you'd like more information on the program, you can get it on HRWeb, which can be easily accessed through AppleWeb.

Interesting this would happen shortly after being called out for a lack of charitable contribution.

Its worthwhile for stockholders etc.. yes, for me and most people...probably not! The average person will never even hearof Apples givings unless they follow Apple news, or Yahoo reports it.

I hope someone donates to a fund that "Clean up Apple's pollution in China" (if it exist), so Apple would have to donate as well thus admit the fact they are polluting China.
