The Infinite Possibilities of Citizen Philanthropy: Pi Day and Every Day
At VMware, we have established an annual tradition of celebrating Pi Day each March 14 by embracing our core EPIC2 values and getting geeky about giving back. Pi is woven throughout VMware Foundation programs as a way to make them memorable and uniquely VMware. As an example, each VMware person is eligible for $3.14 to $3,141.59 of 1:1 Matching Gifts for their nonprofits of choice each year. And as we progress towards VMware’s 2030 Agenda, VMware’s culture of service remains central to everything we do.
Pi Day is another opportunity to amplify the infinite possibilities we all have to support our communities throughout the year. Most VMware Foundation programs are not time-constrained. Instead we encourage VMware people to support their communities through programs like Service Learning, Matching Gifts and Citizen Philanthropy Investments based on their schedules and the need in their communities. Learn more about these programs and how we give back.
This Pi Day, we reflect on VMware’s approach to giving. Choice and flexibility enabled 81% of the VMware community to support the nonprofits they care about last year. That’s more than 30,000 people around the world! Showing the varied interests of our diverse community, VMware people supported more than 14,000 nonprofits in 102 countries through VMware Foundation Citizen Philanthropy programs, amplifying their contributions of time, talent and resources. View inspiring stories of Citizen Philanthropy in action that highlight these milestones.
Please join us in celebrating Pi Day and the infinite possibilities of Citizen Philanthropy today and every day.
