It is no surprise that we have received hundreds of notes from Ford employees asking how they can help during this critical time. Because traditional volunteering has become more difficult, we are finding other ways that they can lend a hand.
The COVID-19 Donation Match program is a combined effort between Ford Fund and Ford Motor Company Executive Chairman Bill Ford that will match $500,000 in donations to designated community organizations in the fight against COVID-19, raising a potential $1 million in total assistance.
Managed by GlobalGiving, Ford’s longtime disaster relief and global grant-making partner, the program aims to support community projects in locations that have both a significant level of emergency need and a substantial Ford employee presence. Funds raised will support community projects focused on addressing hunger, shelter and mobility needs, providing educational resources, or delivering critical medical supplies and services in more than 22 countries.
Employees and others interested in donating can learn more at GlobalGiving's Ford COVID19 Match Donation website page.
