Since the program's inception in 2008, Chevron and its employees through Chevron Humankind have contributed over $50 million to 10,000 nonprofit agencies. With Chevron Humankind, U.S. employees and retirees choose their favorite nonprofit causes to support. All causes are eligible, after stating that they abide by Chevron's non-discrimination and ethics policies. The program includes:
Matching: The program provides a 1-to-1 match for financial contributions by participants to eligible nonprofits – $5,000 per employee and $2,000 per retiree annually – for payroll contributions or direct giving.
Grants for Good: Chevron Humankind also provides grants for volunteer time: $500 for 20 hours and $1,000 for 40 hours, annually. Employees can chose to give the $500 grants to two different nonprofits.
