Through the employee giving program, the T-Mobile Foundation matches Team Magenta's charitable donations to thousands of eligible organizations, dollar for dollar and $10 per volunteer hour- up to $1,500 per employee per calendar year! Since the program launced in October 2015, employees have helped T-Mobile give over $6M to more than 5,500 non-profits. So, we're stepping up our game too: on January 1, 2018, the match limit will increase to from $1,500 to $2,000 per employee per year. We won't stop supporting the causes employees care about!
T-Mobile's Huddle Up Volunteer Grants program is an opportunity for teams of employees to apply for $5,000 grants to support volunteer acvities with youth focused non-profits. In Flint, MI 30 employees from Retail, T-Mobile for Business, and Engineering volunteered to support Keep Growing Detroit, an urban farm that helps nearly 20,000 low-income families grow their own food and feed the community with home-grown fruit and vegetables. In Richmond, five volunteers built out facilities at Change the World RVA, a teen homeless shelter serving the more than 1,800 homeless teens in the Richmond Public Schools.
We love to see employees giving their time, money, and talent to support what they are passionate about and to be forces for good. T-Mobile employees have mobilized for good this year, and we'll keep the momentum going through 2018.
