Nike is donating over $15 million to COVID-19 response efforts, most of which will go to the communities where its employees live and work.

A total of $10 million personal donations from the brand's co-founder Phil Knight and wife Penny, executive chairman Mark Parker and wife Kathy, and president and CEO John Donahoe and wife Eileen will go to the Oregon Food Bank, the Oregon Community Recovery Fund created by the Oregon Community Foundation, and to Oregon Health & Science University for the improvement of statewide care coordination, patient access, and operational readiness for expanded diagnostic testing for Covid-19.

The Nike Foundation has also pledged $1 million to the global Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund created by the United Nations Foundation and Swiss Philanthropy Foundation, $1 million to the Oregon Community Recovery Fund, $1.1 million to support community partners across Europe, Middle East and Africa through the King Baudouin Foundation, $250,000 to the Mid-South Food Bank in Memphis, $250,000 to the Community Foundation of Greater Memphis’s Covid-19 Regional Response Fund, and $500,000 to the Boston Foundation’s Covid-19 Response Fund.

Just days ago, the sportswear giant announced that employees would be paid in full during the temporary closures of its retail stores in the United States and Western Europe until March 27.
