Giving

Giving back is core to who we are as a firm

Caring is one of our values. We see it in the daily activity on our employee giving site, and it is embodied in the PwC Charitable Foundation.

We support nonprofits whose missions align with our priorities, and we encourage our partners and staff to do the same by donating to causes they are personally passionate about. Collectively, our individual gifts add up to something much bigger.

Our progress highlights

$35.6 millionin charitable contributions from PwC’s people (calendar year 2016)

$49 millionin charitable contributions from our firm (FY17)

Our internal crowdfunding platform connects our people not only to the communities where we live and work, but to each other. The platform supports our employees’ individual passions while giving them a new way to engage with their peers. In 2016, 472 employees used the platform to fundraise for a wide range of projects, from providing books to incoming high school freshmen in New Orleans to covering uniform and travel costs for a competitive basketball league that supports at-risk youth in Florida. More than 2,900 of our people supported these efforts, donating a collective $313,000.
