Has Apple ever done any charities or donation programs?

It didn't feel right that one company earned the most but never got on the list of top donation company rank. I even never heard of them doing any donation program ....
Please let me know I'm wrong.

Despite those, if my assumption is correct than I have no ideas why people still loving Apples more than Microsoft ...

Microsoft is known doing their donation things for many times plus whatever Bills foundations... But...people seems just hated them and their stuff.. (hating the one that pays more money back to society ... Wait what?)

If two people have 100 bucks and one gave 10 back for charity and the other one keeps all 100 bucks, of course the one with 100 bucks will have more chance to build up better things or more luxury products.

Maybe I'm too into a social justice that find this is kind of sick? Or some Apples employees please prove me wrong and let me know Apple has started paying more money back to society instead of dumping all their earnings into that fancy spaceship campus.

Sorry...for bitching like this..
Last straw seems overwhelmed me when I saw Apple was on the list of paradise paper tax avoidance things on the news these days...

    Apple matches donations by employees one-for-one, up to $10,000 per year per employee. Recently, for certain natural disasters, they’ve matched two-for-one (for each dollar an employee donates, Apple donates $2). I like this because it gives employees the power to decide what charities Apple donates to. They will also match dollar amounts of gifts (such as gifts donated to a holiday toy drive), and donate $25 for each hour an employee volunteers for an organization.

    Apple has donated $1 million here and there to various flood, disaster, hurricane, and wildfire relief efforts worldwide. It also matches dollar for dollar charitable contributions made by employees.

      They almost always match donations 1:1 and many times 2:1 (eg hurricanes Harvey, Maria, and Central Mexico earthquake, North California wildfires)

      Yea I know..But I wanted to know if Apple started doing this..
      Cuz I already started questioning myself if I should still share my wages to charities if our society doesn't seem to care.

    When Steve Jerbs were around he didn't do squat, Tim Cook was a bit more generous and improved the company's image a bit in this regard.

    Some people and companies do care. Definitely read about the Salesforce 1:1:1 model

    It's so much easier to just bash Apple though.
