Re-affirming our commitment to communities

We’re helping our customers make a difference where it matters most

We've increased our yearly investment in nonprofits from over $286.5 million to $400 million — that's over US$1 million worldwide a day. Last year, our team members performed over 5,500 hours of community service each and every day — and we're striving to inspire even more employees this year.
