Responsibility. To Our Clients and to the Wider World.
Responsibility is at the heart of our business—a responsibility that begins with our clients and extends naturally to the communities in which we live and work.
Building Better Futures Through Education
By supporting innovative, emerging programs, BlackRock provides young people around the world with the financial education and tools, as well as the mentoring and training they need to build better futures for themselves and their families.
The Power of Our People
Through 16 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.
The impact we're having
20,000 young people around the world who we're helping to get an education and skills training through innovative programs that are delivering significantly higher graduation and college enrollment rates.
7X greater likelihood for the U.S. students BlackRock supports through CollegeSet to go on to higher education.
1,900+ non-profit organizations supported worldwide by us through our philanthropic programs.
