Our 6,500 employees are the heart of Visa, and they play an important role in how Visa makes a difference in our local communities around the world. To support our employees’ interest in giving back, we offer two programs — the Visa Matching Gift Program and the Visa Employee Volunteer Program.
Our global Matching Gift program supports the charitable interests of eligible employees. Under this program, employees donate to an eligible charitable organization, and Visa matches the donation one-to-one up to $5,000 each year.
In addition, many Visa employees are passionate about volunteering their time and expertise to charitable causes. We recognize and applaud them for their efforts and encourage the spirit of volunteerism. Visa’s Employee Volunteer program helps employees search for local opportunities, creates team events and tracks the hours spent volunteering. Those employees who accrue the highest number of individual volunteer hours in each region receive the Visa Volunteer Award, a meaningful and sincere recognition of their personal contributions to a better world.
