Program Spotlight: Visa Foundation Matches

Started in 2012 and fueled by the power of social media and collaboration, GivingTuesday is a global movement that encourages people to do good and “unleash the power of radical generosity.” At Visa Foundation, we celebrate GivingTuesday by amplifying Visa employees’ donations with a double-matching commitment of up to $1,000. In 2023, more than 4,800 employees united to support this special day of collective compassion, harnessing Visa Foundation’s match, to generate $7.1 million in support for more than 4,200 organizations around the world.

I donate to the Association for the Physically Disabled of Kenya (APDK). I’m thankful for this matching program which allows us to donate to causes close to our hearts.

Being offered double matching for our donations is fantastic. We all have busy weeks, so why not make one of those Tuesdays way more special?
