Associate Engagement

When it comes to giving back to the community, we’re all in. At Staples, our associates are passionate about getting personally involved in community efforts, and they’re always looking for more ways to reach out. That’s why we’re excited about our 2 Million & Change program as a way for associates to connect with the causes they care most about.

2 Million & Change

In 2013, Staples Foundationsm continued its successful associate-driven giving program, called 2 Million & Change. This unique program allows associates around the world to direct $2 million of foundation funding to non-profit organizations focused on education and job skills. The program brings associates into the giving process and encourages community involvement.

Supporting Our Communities

Associates around the world dedicate their time and resources in many ways, including:

  • Participating in a community day of service
  • Leading school supply and holiday gift drives
  • Mentoring and tutoring students
  • Organizing community events
  • Sharing business expertise and knowledge with local youth
  • Participating in fitness fundraisers in which Staples teams walk, run or bike to raise money for a local cause. To date, fundraisers have taken place in the U.S., Canada, France, Finland, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden.
