Since 2008, employees from around the world have been building homes for under privileged families in the Philippines. Trend Micro subsidizes employee travel to the Philippines and covers all living and building costs.
More than 500 Trend employees from North America, Europe, and Asia have taken part by helping to build homes in 14 different communities – helping 1,620 families and over 2,600 children!
Each year, employees nominate a non-profit philanthropic organization for 1:1 matching donations.
Organizations eligible to receive matching funds generally support underserved communities with a focus toward, but not limited to, the digital gap, education, the environment, and the underprivileged.
The Give and Match program provides Trenders the opportunity to extend their generosity and make a greater impact with their charitable contributions by collaborating with colleagues around the world.
Trenders can also initiate ad hoc Give and Match projects in the case of natural disasters and crises with major casualties (e.g. earthquake, typhoon/hurricane, fire). Recent projects include appeals to help victims of the Thailand flood, the East Africa food crisis, and the Japan earthquake and tsunami.
The results of our Give and Match Program? Since 2008, thousands of Trend Micro employees have participated in this program, providing more than $4,000,000 USD in donations.
In Taiwan, Trend Micro’s alliance with Techsoup provides licenses of top products such as PC-cillin to NGOs, including 96 organizations in 2010/2011.
Through the Department of Social Welfare in Taipei City, we’ve subsidized products to low-income families for the past five years. And when our products are not enough, we have donated boxes of moon cakes to aboriginal Taiwanese tribes for their Moon Festival.
