eBay are announcing their 2021 Global Give grantee winners. Their nonprofit grantees hail from communities all over the world where eBay’s employees live and work. From India and Australia, to Germany and the Netherlands, to Austin and San Jose, our employees were fully involved in the grantmaking program, making it a truly global effort to support inclusive entrepreneurship in local communities.
Through Global Give, the eBay Foundation invites eBay employees to make their communities a better place by helping entrepreneurs of all backgrounds. It’s also a way to live our purpose by supporting and creating economic opportunity for all, especially those from historically underrepresented communities.
This summer, the eBay Foundation asked employees to help choose innovative nonprofits that support entrepreneurship and small businesses in a variety of capacities. At the end of July, eBayers cast over 7,700 votes to help determine the winners of $3 million USD through our employee-involved grantmaking.
“How we show up in the communities where our employees live and work matters. From volunteering to driving local giving campaigns — our employees play an important role in their communities. The Global Give program adds their voice in choosing the grantees we support on a local level.”
– Allie Ottoboni, eBay Foundation president
