To qualify, the gift must be a minimum of $100 worth of equipment at list price ($25 employee contribution) and a maximum of $20,000 worth of equipment at list price ($5,000 employee contribution) per employee, per fiscal year. Employee Donation pricing is only applicable to products donated through the program and available in the Product Portfolio.
The employee contribution (payable in full to Good360) must be in the form of:
- credit/debit card online using the secure Employee Product Giving website hosted by Good360 International,
- personal checking account using a secure online EFT transaction
If multiple employees are pooling resources to contribute a group gift, one employee must lead the effort. He/she may either create an “Open Group Donation” which will enable any HP employee that logs into the Employee Product Giving website to review and contribute to the gift. At the time the matching gift request is created, the lead employee may instead choose to create a "Private Group Donation" by entering the email addresses of HP colleagues that have pledged specific amounts toward the group gift
Any employee may log into the Employee Product Giving website and click on the “Join An Open Group Donation” link from the welcome page to contribute toward a group campaign. Each participating employee must submit his or her contribution online using a major credit card, debit card, or personal checking account. Each employee may download payment history or print a tax letter by clicking on the "My Payment History" link in "My Order History."
Donations will be matched on a first-come-first-served basis until all available funds for the campaign period have been disbursed. Donations are also subject to availability in the HP Supply Chain and may be delayed or cancelled if inventory levels change after orders are placed. Like product may be substituted for items that are near End of Life or otherwise Out of Stock.

The interpretation, application and administration of the provisions of the HP Employee Product Giving Programs shall be determined by HP; its decision whether or not to match any contribution, for whatever reason, shall be final. HP may suspend, change or terminate these programs at any time. Donations will be matched and Product Gifts granted on a first-come-first-served basis, while funds are available and/or supplies last.
Violation of the program requirements may result in invalidation of the employee’s gift, withdrawal of the employee’s privilege of making gifts in the future and ineligibility of the school or organization to receive gifts from other employees. In addition, violation of the program’s rules will be treated as employee misconduct.
Equipment list prices are determined by HP and are not subject to rebates, discounts, or special offers.
Matching Gift requests may take up to 60 days to be fulfilled, depending on the number of requests submitted during a given time period and the speed with which recipient organizations respond with the appropriate matching gift paperwork.
