Today, Seagate Technology donated $5,000 to the City of Fremont to support Gift Fremont, a new program that encourages the public to purchase gift cards online in support of participating Fremont-based independent small businesses. Seagate’s contribution doubles initial funding set aside for the program.

As an added incentive for the public’s participation in the program, Seagate’s contribution will be used to fund a $5 bonus on all purchased gift cards valued at $20 or more, and a $15 bonus on all purchased gift cards valued at $40 or more. It will also cover the merchant eDelivery fee for participating vendors.

A world leader in data solutions, Seagate has had a facility in Fremont for many years. The company is demonstrating a tangible way to support local small businesses that are an integral part of the City’s community and overall business ecosystem.

“Many small businesses are hurting economically because of the shelter-in-place regulations aimed at fighting COVID-19,” said Patricia Frost, senior vice president, Chief Human Resource Officer, Internal Communications and Community Engagement. “The Gift Fremont program is an innovative way to directly help.”

Fremont-based independent small businesses that are interested in participating in Gift Fremont can sign up within a few minutes to create custom-branded eGift Cards, which can be sold on their company website, Facebook pages, and on the Gift Fremont eGift Card platform itself.

For questions about how you can donate or support small business owners in Fremont through Gift Fremont, please  send an email or call 510-284-4020.
