Natural disasters can impact the communities Dell Technologies calls home at any time. We work with disaster relief organizations to help those in need when they do. We offer our expertise, technology and funding, and our team members often volunteer their time and donate items.
In addition to corporate donations, we also match our team members’ monetary donations to vetted disaster relief organizations and the other causes they care about – up to $10,000 USD per team member per year.
(914,000+ volunteer hours overall)
Josh Adams, an inside sales manager, and Matt Rowe, an inside sales account manager, are based in Sydney, Australia, and are part of the NSW Rural Fire Service.
When devastating wildfires challenged Australia in summer 2019, they geared up and gave their time to help fight the fires. In addition to matching employee donations and encouraging volunteer support, Dell made a charitable contribution to Australia disaster relief.
In fiscal year 2020, more than 5,800 organizations received Dell-matched donations.
The devastating impact of category four Hurricane Harvey left Texas with $125 billion in costs and almost 135,000 homes damaged or destroyed.
Laura Hancock, Senior Operations Manager for Dell’s enterprise technical support, learned that the American Red Cross (ARC) in Central Texas was struggling to keep up with emergency relief. It didn’t have enough office space to set up a temporary headquarters (HQ) for managing shelter logistics and shipping supplies.
Hancock got approval for Dell to turn one of its buildings into a temporary ARC HQ. She also secured Dell technology for ARC to use and brought her team together to transform the space to be used effectively. This saved ARC days of work, helping them devote their energies to dealing with Harvey’s immense devastation.
We’re committed to providing the building blocks of tomorrow’s digital workforce, regardless of race, gender, or ability.
Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) help foster an inclusive culture in which team members feel valued, engaged and inspired to do their best work.
