Know of any other companies to add to this list? Please comment below, and I’ll put them on.

Also, can anyone tell me whether that Bank of America money is coming from TARP funds? And where Obama’s $100 million (much needed, don’t get me wrong) is coming from? Couldn’t resist…

    Can small businesses also donate?

  • In addition to the $50,000 The Rite Aid Foundation is making to the American Red Cross International Response Fund earmarked for Haiti earthquake relief, the company also will launch a customer and associate fundraising program next week to aid earthquake relief efforts. Customers will be able to donate funds by purchasing $1 disaster relief certificates at any Rite Aid store across the country in a program similar to ones Rite Aid conducted to support tsunami relief efforts in 2005 and aid the victims of the attacks on 9/11. Rite Aid associates in the corporate and field offices as well as the company’s distribution centers will also participate in the program.

    Walmart should be ashamed of itself. The most profitable company in the world, $100,000? That’s disgusting.

  • CK

    What about IBM???

  • Joseph

    How sweet, of course we Americans will really be covering the cost of their “generosity”.
    “Whoop’s, we have to raise prices! How could that have happened?

    “Killing a Corporation in defense of liberty is no vice.”

  • Tiffany

    Connect Media Group is Donating $20,000 worth of services to raise awareness and funds in the UK and also $10,000 from fund raising events for UNICEF – A total worth $30,000

  • James

    Looks like Citigroup is donating $2 million. Twice as much as the other highest donating companies. And that’s on top of the medicine, supplies, and other aid that has already been sent.

  • To be honest I wouldnt mind if the BoA donation came out of TARP funds, better use for the money than many others are.
    Id prefer Haiti to get a million than a trader on wall street.

  • Lee

    United Technologies is matching up to $250k of employee donations to the American Red Cross

    As consumers I feel it’s important to support the companies who donate in disasters like this.

    When you’re at the grocery store or choosing companies to do business with try to frequent those that donate. It’s a vote for corporations who are willing to pitch in when disasters strike.

    They get the money deducted from their taxes. Nothing to see here.
