GM Canada to Match Employee Donations
To respond to the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, GM in the US is making a $250,000 dollar grant to The International Rescue Committee.
We know many GM Canada employees have been personally impacted by the conflict, as Canada has the 3rd largest Ukrainian population outside Russia and Ukraine. Like our U.S. colleagues, GM Canada will recognize employee donations made to the Canada-Ukraine Foundation and Help Us Help organizations with a dollar-for-dollar match up to $20,000
To learn more about these organizations and to make a donation through payroll deduction or credit card, visit the GM Cares Employee Giving site,
Select ‘Donate’ and click on the feature tile entitled Ukraine Humanitarian Aid.
Members can also donate right to the red cross directly. The Canadian government has announced a matching program up to $20 million
