Tim Cook Says Apple Will Donate $2 Million to Aid Charlottesville, Fight Hate

In an initiative by Tim Cook to help those who were victims of the racist violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, Apple is donating $2 million to two local human rights groups. Cook made his announcement in an internal memo that was published to The Associated Press.

In the memo, Cook also told his employees that he is against the views of President Donald Trump, when the latter tried to draw a comparison between the white nationalists and the protesters who were opposing them. This makes him yet another prominent CEO to distance themselves from President Trump’s comments on the Charlottesville violence, which left one woman dead and more than a dozen injured.

Apple is donating $1 million to the Southern Poverty Law Center and $1 million to the Anti-Defamation League as part of its initiative to fight hate. Furthermore, the company will also match employee contributions on a two-for-one basis. The donations made by employees will also go to these two groups.

Meanwhile, Matt Miller, a spokesperson for American Airlines, announced the airline company will donate $150,000 to the Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville.
