About the Foundation

The VMLY&R Foundation exists to support and celebrate the charitable causes that are important to our employees and their families. As an employee-funded and employee-led employee giving program, the VMLY&R Foundation is a tangible expression of our agency’s core values.

By facilitating and amplifying the widest range of charitable efforts — including volunteer service, pro bono work, community leadership roles and financial contributions — we’re able to have a positive impact in our immediate communities and beyond.
