Vertex Volunteers and Employee Giving

Vertex and the Vertex Foundation are committed to our communities, and we encourage all Vertex employees to give back to support the causes and organizations that they care about. The Vertex Foundation offers Vertex employees a matching gift program, provides training and support to serve on nonprofit boards, and leads Vertex's volunteer efforts through its annual Day of Service.

In 2023, Vertex employees and the Foundation donated $4.5+M to 2,183 organizations through Matching Gift

Matching Gifts

Our matching gift program provides a one-for-one match for Vertex employee donations to qualified nonprofit organizations. All full- and part-time employees are eligible to match up to $5,000 USD or local currency in donations each year.

Disaster Relief

When natural disasters strike, they have a devastating effect on both families and communities. That’s why we support leading nonprofit partners that provide health-related relief services to vulnerable populations during times of disaster.

To ensure our donations get to where they are needed most, the Vertex Foundation works with established, on-the-ground nonprofit organizations in countries where Vertex employees are located. We’ve established partnerships with Americares and Direct Relief, who are leaders in health care relief efforts following disasters. In disasters where safe shelter is an immediate need, the Foundation also supports the American Red Cross.

Our Disaster Relief Partners:
Covid-19 Response

In 2020, the Vertex Foundation donated $5 million USD to support global COVID-19 relief efforts in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Brazil and several countries in Europe. The donations secured testing and critical supplies for health care workers and supported organizations providing food, care and education to vulnerable populations. 

We also hosted special matching campaigns in 2020 and 2021, donating $2 for every $1 dollar donated by employees to 30+ organizations responding to the pandemic.
