Because of the generosity of our amazing people, Employee Match Day 2017 was a major success. Employees across the globe donated to over 400 not-for-profit organizations that they care most about. Combined employee and company donations reached a record-breaking $400,000+ during the 2017 Employee Match Day and over 560 employees participated during the day – more than the first three years of the program combined.
Since the program debuted in 2011, we have distributed nearly $3 million to causes near and dear to us. This year’s Employee Match Day, held on Tuesday, July 18, was further boosted by live updates throughout the day, encouraging more employees to take part. Beginning on Employee Match Day 2016, we also benefitted from a faster and simpler donation process, thanks to the Bright Funds software, and the removal of the minimum donation amount required to receive a company match. These updates made it easier than ever for our people to partner with Constellation in giving back to the many causes that enrich our local communities.
