As a Service. Driven. Commerce company, Global Payments strives to be a responsible corporate citizen, and our employees are the cornerstone of our work to make a positive difference in the lives of others. Given this unprecedented time in modern history, Global Payments reaffirms this commitment by supporting those impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In addition to our established philanthropic programs, Global Payments has launched a charitable initiative to provide relief those in our sphere of influence directly impacted by COVID-19. This effort will engage affected persons in the form of financial contributions to local COVID-19 response funds, partnerships with national food-related charitable non-profits, and the formation of a matching gift programs for Global Payments employees looking to give back on an individual basis.
Helping at Home
To support our hometown neighbors in need, Global Payments is financially supporting COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund through the United Way. These funds directly support those who may have recently lost their jobs or that are experiencing any type of COVID-19 related needs. Additionally, our company is working to support a host of local organizations that are working to provide shelter for displaced homeless veterans and that are supporting our most vulnerable citizens.
Supporting our Nation
At a national level, Global Payments is proud to partner with food-related organizations across the United States including: Feeding America, which is committed to providing food to those in need; The Giving Kitchen, which provides financial assistance to food service workers in need; and the Restaurant Workers Relief Fund to support the restaurant industry.
Caring for the Community
Not only is Global Payments looking for opportunities to give as an organization, but we encourage our team members to actively support their local communities during this crucial time as well. To do so, we’ve developed the Global Payments Coronavirus Response Fund, a new matching gift program specific to pandemic relief efforts. Beginning April 13 through June 5, Global Payments will match U.S. team member donations dollar for dollar, doubling the impact of your personal contribution when giving to one of three key COVID-19 response organizations:
During these challenging times, Global Payments is committed to supporting the people we serve. We are fortunate to have caring and generous team members who want to make a difference for our customers, our communities and for each other.
