We are Citizen Philanthropists. Fostering a thriving community is a shared value at VMware. Our recent designation as one of Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For reflects how we bring our EPIC2 values to action in our everyday lives at work. VMware people are passionate about contributing and giving back to their local communities.
Pi Day is one of VMware’s hallmark community events of the year where we get geeky about Giving Back. We celebrate 3.14 every year by bringing together VMware people to build connections and learn about opportunities to contribute. It’s a time to inspire the Citizen Philanthropist in all of us.
This year’s Pi Day is pretty special – it’s Pi Day of the Century! It happens this Saturday, 3.14.15, at 9:26am and 53 seconds. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime moment.
People at VMware sites around the globe are joining in on the Pi Day celebrations. At headquarters, in Palo Alto, people are gathering today to share their favorite cause and why it inspires them to give back. We’ll be sharing limited edition Pi Day Pi-nt glasses to serve as daily inspiration.
In Cambridge, Massachusetts, the local Foundation Citizen Council held a Pi Day Service Learning fair where employees were able to connect directly with six local nonprofits to learn more about ways they can contribute. Of course, their celebration included some Whoopie Pies as well. Not far from Cambridge, in Burlington, Massachusetts, the Citizen Council is showcasing upcoming Service Learning opportunities, as well as hosting a pie-judging contest. The Colorado Springs Citizen Council is serving up some pizza pies to bring people together around giving back.
Pi Day and Beyond
Oh, and did I mention? Through the VMware Foundation’s Matching Gift program, we match employee’s charitable donations from USD $31.41 up to $3,141.59 annually. We get pretty excited about Pi and giving back.
