1 Dec 2020


This has been a year unlike any other. 2020 has served as a painful reminder that there are many important causes that deserve advocacy and action: the fight for racial justice, COVID-19, devastating natural disasters, the growing homelessness crisis, and so much more. For Pinterest’s holiday gift this year, we want to support all Pinployees who are inspired to act. One of the great things about our culture is that so many of us want to give time and resources to causes we care about. This year, Pinterest is repurposing the funds that were set aside for our company holiday gift, and instead empowering each employee to donate to a non-profit organization of their choice. Our CEO Ben Silbermann will be doubling each donation, maximizing our ability to contribute. Happy Giving Tuesday to all.

What is health insurance like at Pinterest?
