Google Donating $10 Million to Fight Ebola

/ 6 years ago


Larry Page, CEO of Google, announced today that the company has donated $10 million to a variety of charities in the fight against the Ebola outbreak. Google says they have shared the money between “InSTEDD, International Rescue Committee, Medecins Sans Frontieres, NetHope, Partners in Health, Save the Children and U.S. Fund for UNICEF” among others.

As well as giving the $10 million, Google has set up a public giving campaign, in which the company will donate $2 for every $1 donated. This will continue until an additional $7.5 million is raised. All money donated will go to charity, as Google has promised to cover the costs of processing fees for donations. Larry Page’s family foundation is also donating another $15 million to the effort, bringing a total of $25 million to go towards fighting the deadly disease.

The news comes as Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced last week that he will also be donating $25 million to the effort.
