Social Responsibility/Corporate Outreach

There's always time on the clock to give back.

We wouldn’t be where we are today without some direction, inspiration and a helping hand. ESPN and its employees have had a long history of making a difference in the lives of others and for local, national and international charities. Since its first years, ESPN has worked with the Special Olympics, and has continually grown many charitable initiatives through corporate giving, special projects and volunteerism – the most heartwarming and rewarding aspect. We call ourselves Team ESPN, working in the communities of our offices. We are “Fans Helping Fans®.”

ESPN employees also raise millions of dollars each year directly and through ESPN media for The V Foundation for Cancer Research, a charity founded by ESPN and the late basketball coach and commentator Jim Valvano. Since 1993, $90 million has been raised by The V Foundation, and research grants are awarded nationwide for all types of cancer. Today, 100% of cash donations to The V Foundation go directly to cancer research. All these efforts help us stay focused on what’s most important in life.

Boston College's Carroll School of Management list Disney as the top company among 50 recognized as leaders in corporate social responsibility.
