Organization Chosen by Local Staples Associate to Benefit from Staples
The Engineering For Kids Foundation has been awarded $1,000 by Staples Foundation, the private charitable arm of Staples, Inc., under a program that lets Staples associates direct donations.
The grants are part of a philanthropic initiative created by Staples Foundation which allows Staples associates around the world to direct funding to non-profit organizations that are focused on education or job skills. The program encourages local community engagement by awarding larger grants to organizations where associates are highly engaged in volunteering or
fundraising – up to $25,000 per organization.
The program, called 2 Million and Change, awards funds to organizations around the world, reaching more than $2 million in grants by the end of the year. In 2014, associates globally directed more than $2.4 million of Staples Foundation grants to over 1,000 non-profit organizations.
