Making an impact that matters
We believe the power of human connection fosters a more productive, innovative, and inclusive society. By bringing together people, clients, nonprofits, and communities, we can develop innovative solutions around society’s most pressing issues, from today’s global pandemic to helping nonprofits deliver on their missions and innovate into the future. Through our Deloitte community, we aim to achieve lasting social impact for the greater good.
Supporting communities during the COVID-19 pandemic
Our mission is to harness the collective power of Deloitte’s people to help change lives, build stronger systems, and shape the future. During this global crisis, this commitment is sustained as we care for our people, clients, and communities. Even while physically distancing—we are virtually connecting to create community—so we can make an impact that matters today, but also one that takes us into a brighter, stronger future.
Deloitte’s commitment to supporting the fight against COVID-19 includes financial support of nonprofits and communities. Across our businesses, we’re exploring needs on an ongoing basis with clients, industry peers, nonprofits, and community leaders so we can bring the vast skills, experience, of our people through remote pro bono and skills-based volunteering.
In response to the toll of the pandemic on our country, and in realization of the critical need to support those who are struggling to get the resources, supplies and help they need in the short term, Deloitte has made a financial commitment to response and relief efforts.
