Since the program’s founding, Disney VoluntEARS have given more than 6.5 million hours of volunteer service in communities around the world.
We believe being a good corporate citizen is the right thing to do, for our consumers and guests, our employees and cast members, and our businesses. It makes our company a desirable place to work, reinforces the attractiveness of our brands and entertainment, and strengthens our bonds with families, as well as our consumers, neighbors and business associates. Whether it’s through corporate giving or the giving of time and talent by our Disney VoluntEARS, we understand and appreciate the importance of collaboration and inspiration. We continue our company’s legacy of giving as we seek to do our part in improving and enriching the lives of kids and families as well as contributing our time, resources, and energies in communities around the world.
The following are our goals for community engagement:
Employee Engagement: The Walt Disney Company encourages our employees and cast members to be active and engaged citizens at work and in their local communities. Many employees contribute their time through the Disney VoluntEARS program or our network of Green Teams, lending their expertise and guidance to make a difference. Learn more.
Consumer Engagement: We seek to engage our most important audience – kids and families – through fun and unique ways that inspire them to take action and give back. Disney offers our consumers the tools and resources to help the planet, strengthen their communities, and enhance their health, happiness and well-being. Learn more.
Charitable Giving: Compassion, Conservation and Creativity are the cornerstones of The Walt Disney Company’s charitable giving. Disney annually contributes cash, in-kind, and media support to non-profit organizations around the world. Learn more.
