The Americas, including Mexico, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Haiti and the surrounding islands, have suffered in recent weeks from earthquakes, massive flooding and/or damage to property due to high winds and heavy rain from hurricanes.
AECOM, a fully integrated global infrastructure firm headquartered in Los Angeles that designs, builds, finances and operates infrastructure assets for governments, businesses and organizations in more than 150 countries, has offices and several hundred employees in the impacted areas, and our first and most important priority is their safety and well-being.
The outpouring of support from our employees has been tremendous. They want to support their colleagues impacted by these tragedies. This site—originally established to help victims of Hurricane Irma—has now been expanded to include AECOM colleagues affected by Hurricane Maria, as well as the Mexico earthquake. All donations will be matched by AECOM up to $50,000, and the collective funds raised will be dispersed evenly to affected employees identified by our internal team. Participation in this fund raising effort is purely voluntary. The decision to contribute (or choose not to) will not in any way impact employees’ employment.
Our thoughts are with our colleagues and their families in the impacted regions and the surrounding areas.
Note for employees outside the United States: It’s important to note that you are donating to a U.S.-based campaign. Your bank will automatically convert your payment into U.S. currency, and you will be charged the appropriate amount. Learn more here.
