Staff Engagement Programs
Amgen recognizes the importance of giving back to our local communities. Each year, thousands of Amgen staff generously devote their personal time, energy, talents and funds to a broad variety of charitable organizations nationwide. Through its own commitment to build stronger communities where Amgen employees live and work, the Amgen Foundation encourages staff to become involved in their local communities through its Dollars for Doers and Matching Gift Programs.
Dollars for Doers
The Dollars for Doers program helps Amgen staff members earn monetary support for their favorite charitable organizations based on their own community service. For each volunteer hour logged by Amgen staff in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, the Amgen Foundation will donate $25 per staff volunteer hour, up to an annual maximum of $2,000.
Matching Gift Program
Established in 1993, the Amgen Foundation Matching Gift Program provides individual staff members with the opportunity to amplify their own monetary donations to their favorite eligible charitable organizations. The Foundation matches every dollar donated to eligible nonprofit organizations in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, from $50 to a cumulative total of $10,000 annually per staff member. Staff also can donate any publicly traded stock to an eligible nonprofit organization and have it matched by the Amgen Foundation. By matching donations from individual staff members, the Amgen Foundation has made a positive impact for thousands of outstanding nonprofit organizations across the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
