The IBM Retiree Charitable Contribution Campaign is part of IBM’s national fundraising drive that offers IBM employees, executives and retirees the opportunity to participate in improving the quality of life for less fortunate individuals and families in our communities.
It was initiated in 1988 and in recent years has raised more than $2M annually for the benefit of 501(c)(3) agencies. Throughout its history, it has been considered the most successful corporate campaign of its kind in America.
Retirees have the option to nominate and contribute to the organizations of their choice, including environmental, cultural and educational, as well as health, human services, schools and humanitarian relief. Religious organizations such as churches and synagogues do not qualify as such unless they have a specific 501(c)(3) or equivalent to serve the community such as a homelss shelter, food bank, literacy programs, etc.
This very worthwhile program offers you the opportunity to join the thousands of other IBM retirees who, as a group, traditionally continue to exhibit strong community citizenship. There are more than 10,000 agencies on The 2015 ECCC/RCCC List. If yours is not on the list, you can nominate it to be considered in future campaigns.
