The Office of Corporate Engagement of Goldman Sachs advances the firm's objective to make a difference in its philanthropy by programming and coordinating charitable activities.
There are a number of ways our people seek to make a difference: through financial support, volunteering endeavors, and partnerships with nonprofit organizations worldwide.
Our Approach to Philanthropy
Goldman Sachs and its people are committed to helping in communities where we work and live, and in places more distant, where our ideas, people and resources can make a difference. By pioneering initiatives and supporting programs that help solve crucial social and environmental issues, we commit ourselves to taking philanthropic action based on discipline, innovation and a strategic approach over the long term. Philanthropy is deeply ingrained in our firm's culture -- our contributions help create significant change and far-reaching success.
In all of our philanthropic investments, we adhere to four guiding principles:
- Align with our core business by focusing on economic growth and community engagement.
- Establish networks of nonprofit and educational partners who have world-class expertise and experience.
- Rigorously measure results.
- Engage the time and talent of the people of Goldman Sachs at all levels of the firm.
