Nike to Donate Over $15 Million in Coronavirus Support Nike recently announced its pledge of more than $15 million to aid local communities in the fight against COVID-19.

The company’s executives personally donated a combined $10 million to various organizations in Oregon, where Nike’s headquarters is located.

The Oregon Food Bank received $1 million, the Oregon Community Recovery Fund received $2 million and the Oregon Health and Science University received $7 million.

An additional $1 million will be donated to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund by the Nike Foundation, as well as another $1 million to the Oregon Community Fund.

The King Baudouin Foundation, Memphis Mid-South Food Bank, Community Foundation of Greater Memphis and Boston Foundation will also receive donations from the Nike Foundation.

To further support the communities of their employees, Nike also announced a two-to-one match of all donations made locally, nationally and internationally in support of COVID-19 response.

All of these donations are in addition to the $1.4 million donated by Nike to the China Youth Development Foundation in January.
