The PwC Charitable Foundation provides financial support in times of need – both to the people of PwC and their immediate families and to non-profit organizations that support and promote humanitarianism and education.
Revitalized in 2001 in response to the terrorist attacks on September 11, the Foundation has since given more than $11 million in grants to the people of PwC in times of financial hardship, toward developing and educating future leaders, and to those suffering from starvation, diseases, and exclusion in the wake of disasters.
The Foundation is growing – in both assets and reach. Our vision is to engage the people of PwC in a way that creates meaningful connections to the causes we support and a lasting legacy. The Foundation is a vehicle intended to give visibility and voice to charitable efforts that are unique in scale and scope – ones that can’t be accomplished through the efforts of just one individual or just one market. We strive to enhance overall efforts by helping to create a culture of giving and fostering a sense of “family” among our people.
In addition to the types of donations shown in the box below, the Foundation serves as a year-round resource for PwC employees and their families facing financial difficulties in their own personal lives as the result of health emergencies, uninsured property losses, the unexpected loss of a family member, or other challenging situations.
“The PwC Charitable Foundation, through the People Who Care Fund, allowed me the flexibility to spend money on lodging at the Ronald McDonald House, doctor co-pays, and other costly living expenses while living in New York City during my [cancer] treatment. Having this money really gave us the flexibility to make sure we got all the treatment for me that I needed, without having the financial burden on our minds.”
