GoDaddy tops last year’s giving by $300,000.
With all of the negative news I’ve written about Go Daddy this year, it’s nice to end the year on an up note. Today the company announced that its total philanthropic giving for the year is $1.7M, topping last year’s $1.4M in giving. That’s about $1,000 per employee, a very respectable number.
Go Daddy supports a number of non-profits from local (Phoenix Children’s Hospital) to international (Make A Wish Foundation). According to the company, it has donated to about three dozen charities over the past two years.
The company allows non-profit organizations to apply to receive funding. An online application is available on the company’s web site.
Given the down economy, especially in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area where the company is based, I suspect the local community is ecstatic to have the company around — more jobs, more charity support, and more tax revenue.
