Investing in our communities
The power of our people
Through 13 BlackRock Gives committees around the world, our employees help direct the firm's charitable donations and volunteer their own time to address the needs of their local communities. The committees sponsor volunteer events throughout the year for causes that our employees are most passionate about—like education, the environment, fighting homelessness, and breast cancer research.
The firm makes it easier for employees to give back to their communities by offering paid days off for volunteering and by matching charitable donations dollar for dollar through a Matching Gifts Program.
