The Goldman Sachs COVID-19 Relief Fund & Employee Match Program

As part of the firm’s COVID-19 community response, we have deployed over $38 million in philanthropic support to the hardest-hit communities globally, comprised of two employee-driven efforts.

The firm launched the Goldman Sachs COVID-19 Relief Fund, initially as a $25 million philanthropic commitment through Goldman Sachs Gives to support relief efforts around the world. In addition, the firm committed $5 million to match employee donations to nonprofit organizations.
