Employee Volunteerism and Matching Gift Program
Our more than 9,500 employees represent the face of Visa in our local communities around the world. To support our employees' interest in giving back, we offer two programs-Visa Matching Gift and Visa Volunteers.
Our global Matching Gift program supports the charitable interests of our employees, who can donate to an eligible charitable organization with Visa matching the donation up to $5,000 each year.
Many Visa employees are passionate about volunteering their time and expertise to charitable causes. We applaud them for their efforts and encourage the spirit of volunteerism. Our Visa Volunteers program helps employees around the world find local opportunities, create team events and track their volunteer hours. We also honor our leading employee volunteers with the Visa Volunteer Award, recognizing their personal contributions to their communities.
To celebrate the impact our more than 9,500 employees can have on their local communities and encourage employees to join Visa Volunteer events around the world, Visa has introduced November as Visa's Global Volunteer Month. Teams across the U.S., Latin America, Africa and Asia Pacific are planning events, donating their time and talents and demonstrating Visa's commitment to supporting our communities.
'We know that people are at the center of change. Through our innovative global partnership with Visa, the company's more than 8,000 employees are connecting with volunteer opportunities through our HandsOn Network around the world. We've witnessed firsthand the powerful impact that the time and talents of Visa employees can have on their communities."
