Nvidia, the US-based graphics chip company, has donated $15 million to non-profits helping civilians affected by the current Israel-Palestine War. In this $15 million, $5 million is from Nvidia employees from over 30 countries.
“We are proud to see such broad support from Nvidia families in Israel and around the world, and are grateful for their prayers and hope for the return of our colleague Avinatan Or, and the other hostages from Hamas captivity,” said Gideon Rosenberg, Nvidia’s deputy general counsel. Avinatan has been an engineer at Nvidia since April 2022, according to his LinkedIn page. He was captured by Hamas at the Nova music festival on October 7 along with his girlfriend Noa Argamani and around 240 others, some of whom have since been released.
Asor Fund (JGive), American Friends of Magen David Adom, Doctors Without Borders, Friends of United Hatzalah, IsraAID (US) Global Humanitarian Assistance, Jewish Agency for Israel, World Central Kitchen, and Zaka were some of the groups that Nvidia employees chose to give to.
