Making a Measurable Difference

In partnership with leading non-profits, we are focused on two fundamental issues critical to human development and sustainable worldwide economic growth – Zero Hunger and Gender Equality. Learn more about our impact here.

Zero Hunger

Food security and adequate nutrition are critical components of health, well-being and economic productivity. Yet every night, one in nine people around the globe go to bed hungry.

Along with our global partners, we extend our efforts to support Zero Hunger by combating food insecurity as both a systemic global issue and a local tragedy that prevents families and communities alike from reaching their full potential.

Gender Equality

We believe that gender equality is a fundamental human right, yet the concerns and perspectives of girls and women everywhere are all too often overlooked or underrepresented.

That’s why we match the resources, time and talents of our people with leading organizations around the world tackling the essential challenges facing girls and women today.
