Children’s Hospitals and Wish Granting

Investments in Youth

We are committed to providing inspiration and opportunity to the next generation of innovators and storytellers. Through transformative programming, Disney is helping today’s youth develop the skills they’ll need to create the futures they imagine.

Disney Conservation Fund

Disney Conservation Fund is committed to saving wildlife and building a global community inspired to protect the magic of nature together. Since 1995, the Disney Conservation Fund has directed $100 million to support nonprofit organizations working with communities to save wildlife, inspire action and protect the planet.

Employee Programs

Disney employees and cast members have a wonderful tradition of giving back. To applaud these efforts, we match financial donations to charitable organizations around the world through Disney Employee Matching Gifts, a program of The Walt Disney Company Foundation.

We also provide an opportunity for employees to turn their hours of volunteer service into a financial contribution through VoluntEARS Grants. Since 2010, Disney has matched $71 million in employees’ personal donations of time and money.

The Walt Disney Company Foundation has awarded college scholarships for more than 50 years. One hundred and fifty academic awards are granted to graduating high school students of Disney employees and cast members from around the world each year. Scholarships are awarded based on students’ academic achievement, extracurricular activities, community service and demonstrated leadership.
