In support of Giving Tuesday the Caterpillar Foundation offered a limited-time 2:1 match for global employee and U.S. retiree gifts made starting November 15 through November 30, 2021. Thanks to the incredible outpouring of support from employees and retirees, we reached the $1.5 million match cap. The 2:1 Giving Tuesday match program is now closed to new submissions. Charities now have until December 15, 2021 at 11:59pm CST to confirm match requests that were previously submitted during this timeframe.
But there is good news! We still offer a 1:1 match through our standard year-round matching program (details below). Each Caterpillar participant may request an annual combined total maximum Foundation match of $10,000 USD in each calendar year.
