The Roche Gives Back program is an employee giving initiative designed to help Roche employees creatively and collaboratively engage with each other and their communities. Through the program, employees can make donations to charities of their choice, track volunteer time, identify thousands of volunteer opportunities and request donation and volunteer matches. Roche matches charitable contributions 1:1 (up to $500 per year).
Through the Dollars for Doers program, employees may earn $10 per hour (up to an additional $500 per year) for volunteering outside of normal work hours. Highlights of Roche Gives Back include:
♦ Roche Indy has matched more than $2 million since the launch of the Roche Gives Back in 2013.
