Over 600,000 registered users of HP LIFE, an online global learning program
The HP Foundation funds the Matter to a Million and HP LIFE programs, awards grants for humanitarian relief in communities hit by disaster, and matches employee giving. The HP Foundation does not accept unsolicited grant requests.
Matter to a Million
Billions of people, including many would-be entrepreneurs, lack access to mainstream banking services. In 2014, the HP Foundation launched Matter to a Million, a five-year, $7 million partnership with Kiva, a non-profit microlender that connects low-income entrepreneurs to capital.
Through the program, each year HP employees receive several $25 credits that they can loan to Kiva borrowers, who then use the money to buy essentials such as tools, livestock, and supplies. This is a unique program, which we believe will change the lives of millions of people, creating a ripple effect across hundreds of villages, towns, and cities around the world.
HP LIFE is a global online learning program that equips people with the 21st century business and IT skills to start, build, and manage their own business. It offers users 25 interactive learning modules as well as features such as certification, support from HP experts, and global community discussion forums.
With the addition of Hindi and Simplified Chinese in 2014, the program is now available in seven languages. By December 2014, more than 480,000 users from more than 200 countries and territories were registered on the platform.
Major natural disasters such as floods and earthquakes can overwhelm communities or entire countries. HP Foundation aid and dedicated HP volunteers have helped people, nonprofits and governments persevere when catastrophe strikes. To bring relief to people around the world, HP employees, HP and the HP Foundation combine to provide valuable financial support.
Donations assisted in disaster relief and recovery efforts in the Philippines following Typhoon Haiyan; in China following the earthquake in Yunnan province; and in areas of the Balkans and Colorado, United States, affected by severe flooding.
Employees are also encouraged to support the many causes they care about with cash donations. Through the HP Foundation US Cash Match Program, the HP Foundation matches employees' donations to eligible nonprofit organizations dollar for dollar, up to $1,000 per employee. In 2014, the HP Company Foundation donated $3.6 million through the program.
