With the aim of helping the fight against Ebola, Google announced the launch of a public giving campaign. As part of this campaign, Google will match all donations 2 to 1.

So if you donate $1 to help the fight against Ebola, Google will donate $2. All the money you donate will go to nonprofit organizations because Google will cover all processing fees. Google will keep matching donations 2:1 until $7.5 million are raised.

The money you donate will go to a donor advised fund called Network for Good that will distribute the money to nonprofit organizations that do critical work in West Africa. The money will go to the following nonprofits:
  • Doctors Without Borders – sends trained staff to West Africa, delivers essential supplies, and runs Ebola case management centers.
  • International Rescue Committee – trains local health workers, offers safe burials, keeps primary health facilities open.
  • Partners in Health – treats patients infected by Ebola, trains community health workers, provides quality care.
  • Save the Children – builds treatment centers, trains and equips healthcare workers, protects orphaned children.
As I mentioned above, Google will match donations 2:1 until $7.5 million are raised.
Google and Larry Page will donate an additional $25 million to help the fight against Ebola.

Google will donate an additional $10 million to support nonprofit organizations that fight against Ebola, organizations such as InSTEDD, International Rescue Committee, NetHope, and U.S. Fund for UNICEF.

Larry Page’s family foundation will separately donate an extra $15 million. "Our hearts go out to everyone whose lives have been touched by this tragedy," said Larry Page in a blog post.

So in all, an additional $25 million will go towards helping the fight against Ebola.

Which reminds me that Mark Zuckerberg donated that much back in October. The Facebook co-founder and CEO decided to help the fight against Ebola by donating $25 million to the CDC Foundation.

Speaking about Facebook, earlier this November it introduced three initiatives that will help fight Ebola. One of those initiatives is to help raise funds for organizations involved in the fight against Ebola.
