Vertex Celebrates Giving Tuesday by Launching a New Employee Matching Gift Program

 

November 28, 2017

Beginning today, Giving Tuesday, our employees around the world can double their charitable donations with the help of our new Matching Gift program. As part of our sustained giving commitment of $500 million over the next 10 years, this important program will help extend the impact of the thousands of acts of generosity that our employees participate in every year in their communities. The Matching Gift program is the first initiative supported by The Vertex Foundation.

The Matching Gift program will match up to $2,500 annually per full-time regular employee toward the local schools, shelters, elder care organizations, museums, environmental groups and other eligible charities that our employees support. We know our employees are excited about this new opportunity, so we asked them where they plan to give.
