Our Response to COVID-19
In response to COVID and in alignment with our culture of giving back and matching donations for natural disasters, Bentley formed a Resilience Response Fund. The fund is led by a core group of colleague volunteers to research, provide advice for colleagues’ contributions, and to allocate the company’s 2:1 matching contribution to charitable organizations and nonprofits organizations that working to lessen the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The fund distributes donations on a global basis for both short-term critical needs and to support the resilience of our communities and our economies. We contributed to the following organizations in response to COVID-19: Combating COVID-19 Fund (Gates Philanthropy Partners), UNICEF, International Medical Corps, Project HOPE, CDP COVID-19 Response Fund (Center for Disease Philanthropy), United Way Worldwide, International Committee of the Red Cross and Red Crescent, Amref Health Africa, and Give2Asia.
