A $250 million commitment to communities worldwide

Advancing economic mobility, educational opportunity, diversity and inclusion, and health and well-being.

BUILDING RESILIENT COMMUNITIES


This is a critical moment for corporate leadership—with its extensive global presence, Cognizant is building on its longstanding investments in corporate social responsibility to announce a new five-year $250 million effort to advance economic mobility, educational opportunity, diversity and inclusion, and health and well-being in communities around the world.

Beginning in 2021, Cognizant and its foundations will expand grantmaking in the U.S. and India to new global markets where the company continues to grow its operations, including Australia, Canada, Germany, and the United Kingdom. In addition, Cognizant will introduce new philanthropic programs to advance diversity and inclusion efforts in partnership with Cognizant’s Affinity Groups, supporting African American, Latinx, LGBTQ, Pan-Asian, women, and veteran communities. New programs will also expand opportunities for employees to contribute their time and skills, and deploy additional COVID-19 relief funds that build on commitments made in 2020.
