Our employees serve as champions for their local communities. That’s why they’re at the heart of all the good we do. By supporting the causes they care most about, we’re able to help create vibrant, healthy communities.
The T-Mobile Foundation employee matching program supports the causes that our employees are passionate about. The T-Mobile Foundation matches employees’ donations to thousands of charities, dollar for dollar. And, we don’t just stop there, we donate USD 10 per volunteer hour that they complete, up to a combined USD 2 000 per calendar year.
Following the close of T-Mobile’s merger with Sprint, we added 27 000+ legacy Sprint employees to the matching program. To support and welcome our new employees, we seeded their giving accounts with USD 25 each to donate to the causes they care most about.
Huddle up volunteer grants program
Our huddle up volunteer grants program encourages T-Mobile employees nationwide to self-organize in small teams to support youth focused non-profits through volunteering activities. Teams apply to the T-Mobile Foundation for a USD 5 000 grant to support their youth projects. In 2020, we were able to award USD 193 600 toward employee volunteer projects before we had to put the program on hiatus to encourage employee’s safety when the COVID-19 pandemic hit. We look forward to restarting the program again in 2021. Some examples of huddle up volunteer grants in action:
