“R” Employees Give Back
We are very proud that our employees across the country share in our company’s philanthropic mission to keep children safe and help them in times of need. In addition to supporting company giving programs, we encourage our team to personally reach out to help their own individual charitable causes.
“R” Volunteer Program
In addition to opportunities through the company’s signature philanthropic partners, “R” Volunteer Program, in collaboration with VolunteerMatch, provides team members with tools and information to find organizations in their areas that work to keep kids safe and help them in times of need. Whether volunteering on their own, participating in team building activities with co-workers, or engaging their children and families, “R” Volunteer Program makes it easy for team members to give back in the communities where they live and work.
The Geoffrey Fund
When Toys“R”Us, Inc. employees face financial challenges, the Geoffrey Fund can serve as a resource to help them in times of need. Established in 1992, the Geoffrey Fund is a nonprofit organization providing monetary assistance to Toys“R”Us, Inc. employees affected by natural disasters or personal hardships. It is funded entirely by donations from company employees, which are then matched 100% by Toys“R”Us, Inc.
Matching Gifts Program
While children are at the heart of our business, we realize that our employees also care about causes and organizations on a broader level. The company’s Matching Gifts Program is a wonderful way for Toys“R”Us, Inc. to partner with its employees to support causes that reflect their own personal interests and passions. To that end, the company will match contributions up to $1,000 annually made by employees to approved nonprofit organizations that keep children safe and help them in times of need; organizations that support the research, treatment, prevention and cure of diseases or disorders that impact families and children; and educational institutions, so employees can support their college or high school.
A Billion + Change
As a company dedicated to being a caring and reputable neighbor, Toys“R”Us is proud to join A Billion + Change and hundreds of the country’s leading brands by pledging service to the communities where we live and work. A Billion + Change is a national campaign to mobilize pro bono and skills-based volunteerism from corporate America. As part of the company’s ongoing commitment to volunteerism, Toys“R”Us is working with A Billion + Change to encourage employees to not only donate their time, but to leverage their unique skills on behalf of charities across the country. Whether our employees apply their finance skills to helping a nonprofit balance the books, or leverage their logistics experience to help an organization manage in-kind donations, together we hope to inspire the largest commitment of corporate service in history.
