This year has brought numerous challenges to so many of our communities across the United States ‐ from COVID-19 and natural disasters to economic hardship and job loss. Many of our own neighbors and community members are in need of the vital services that non-profit organizations provide. Yet, so many of these charities have been hard hit by the recent socioeconomic downturn and are in need of additional funding to stay afloat.
As we prepare to kick off the 2020 IBM Retiree Charitable Contribution Campaign, we invite you to make a difference and participate. Last year, our combined giving campaigns raised more than $24 million for thousands of national and local agencies ‐ all nominated by IBMers and retirees. This year, let's build on IBM's history of giving. Our communities need us.
The campaign will begin Friday, November 6, and close on Tuesday, December 1. We understand that 2020 has been a challenging year for many, and we welcome any contribution you are able to give.
You can download a contribution form you can use for your donation at this link - Application Form and visit the retiree campaign website at www.ibmretireecampaign.com. Campaign representatives are ready to assist with any questions at email@example.com or at 1-800-895-3004.
We invite you to donate as well your device's spare computing power via the World Community Grid to advance cutting-edge scientific research on topics related to health, povertyand sustainability. More information on how to sign up is available at www.worldcommunitygrid.org.
Thank you for your consideration and support.
