GlobalGiving.com/amat is an online marketplace for international giving. AMAT employees can browse and select from a wide offering of projects, organized by geography or by themes such as health care, the environment, and education. Once an employee chooses a project, he/she can contribute any amount, through the Employee Giving online tool (accessed through the HR Service Center at http://hrweb).
These contributions directly support the entrepreneurial work of project leaders throughout the world, who are bringing innovative, empowering solutions to challenging social problems at the local community level.
All donations made to projects go through the GlobalGiving Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 entity, and are fully tax-deductible.
GlobalGiving works a network of "Project Sponsors" to post projects on globalgiving.org/amat. Project Sponsors are reputable organizations that vet projects to ensure they are legitimate, well-run, and compliant with PATRIOT Act guidelines. Once projects are submitted, GlobalGiving does a secondary check, prior to posting.
The following is a list of current project sponsors; for more information, please click on the name to be taken to the organization's home page.
