Who We Support
Across the Logitech brands, in acts big and small, individual employees and teams have responded to the Coronavirus pandemic by impacting Healthcare, Education, and the communities we touch.
Video-Enabled Telemedicine Carts
The Wuhan Huoshenshan & Leishenshan Hospitals were two emergency field hospitals built in response to the Coronavirus outbreak. Despite lockdown conditions, Logitech teams in Wuhan managed to donate over 60 video-enabled telemedicine carts in only four days.
Design and Print 3D Valves for Ventilator Masks
The Cork Design and Engineering teams used their expertise to design and 3D print valves for snorkel-based ventilator masks that are now in stock at the local hospital. The team is engaged with a government supported task force on how to ramp up to 400-500 valve sets for use in other local hospitals, optimizing the design, and engaging others to print thousands more sets for hospitals across Ireland.
Sourcing Face Masks Across the Globe
Our Operations team is bringing their procurement strength to bear by sourcing masks from across the globe. We initially distributed approximately 100,000 masks in China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. We’ve since shipped an additional 15,000 masks to U.S., Ireland, Switzerland, Italy and Netherlands sites for delivery to health workers and hospitals, with another 100,000 planned for global distribution.
Donation to GlobalGiving Coronavirus Relief Fund
Logitech donated $100K to the GlobalGiving Coronavirus Relief Fund. That initial donation was matched by our CEO, Bracken Darrell. You can join us.
Teach from Home Kits Donated
K-12 teachers are receiving thousands of webcam and headset bundles to teach outside the classroom. We were overwhelmed by the number of requests and look forward to donating more when we’re able. Learn more about effective strategies for distance learning in this webinar and see our additional resources for educators. We continue to look for ways to assist the education community.
Individual Employees Making a Difference
People across Logitech are sharing their good fortune and helping others in their community manage through this challenging time, by everything from offering advice on setting up video calls to rummaging through closets to donate their extra mice, cameras, and keyboards.
Music school in CA enabled distance lessons with cameras donated by neighbors.
Virtual Art class uses Zoom for first time. Employee helped train teacher/students and then stayed and enjoyed the class too.
Employee sets up virtual church service for his congregation.
Fitness instructor, and wife of employee, moves classes online.
Daily Employee Meals Donated to Healthcare Workers at Local Hospitals
Our Chennai employees have donated their daily meal allocation from Kadhir Dhaan /Eco kitchen directly to Royapettah General Hospital and the Government Specialty Hospital (Omandur estate) for Covid health care workers, patient attenders, and staff. From the initiative we will be able to support 250 meals/day for these deserving people.
Designing a Home Face Shield Hack
We are a design-led company, and were concerned about the shortage of face protection available. We all know that the priority is to save the N-95 rated face masks and medical-grade shields for the front line health and emergency response teams. So we challenged our design teams to create an alternative for the rest of us.

“The recent COVID-19 pandemic has shown that Logitech wants to, and is, driving change. From individuals helping neighbors with equipment to teach classes and run their businesses remotely, to our sites donating supplies, and using our sourcing strength to procure masks from around the globe. The company is also donating products both in public and private.”
