Google creates $4 million crisis fund to help people hit by Trump's travel ban
Google has created a $2 million crisis fund that can be matched with up to $2 million in donations from employees, totalling $4 million, for four organisations: the American Civil Liberties Union, Immigrant Legal Resource Center, International Rescue Committee and UNHCR.
Separately, company executives are also giving money individually to the cause.
The campaign was disclosed in a memo sent by Google CEO Sundar Pichai and confirmed by a Google spokeswoman, USA Today reports.
Executives at Apple, Microsoft, Netflix, Uber, Airbnb and Tesla Motors have also denounced the policy, which was temporarily stalled by a federal judge in New York. ■
