$1 Million Global COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund


Date december 1, 2020

Gordon Brothers created a $1 million COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund to assist charities impacted across the globe by COVID-19. The fund was established in March 2020 to support the world’s most pressing needs while also aiding local charities to strengthen the communities in which we live and work. Gordon Brothers shareholders collaborated with employees to carefully select over 60 philanthropic organizations working to better the lives of people challenged medically and financially by the pandemic. Additionally, Gordon Brothers doubled the number of volunteer days so all employees could take time off to support their local communities in 2020.
