The Case Foundation
Jean and Steve Case established the Case Foundation in 1997 to reflect their family’s commitment to finding lasting solutions for complex social challenges. Our purpose is to expand giving, promote everyday philanthropy, deepen civic engagement, and broaden the use of new technologies to make giving more informed, efficient, and effective. We seek to do this while emphasizing the value of collaboration across all sectors, individual and organizational leadership, and entrepreneurship. We are happy to support A Billion + Change to help grow the movement of companies that are enabling their employees to provide skills-based pro bono services to nonprofits worldwide.

Capital One has always believed that, as business leaders, we have a unique opportunity and inherent responsibility to create value in the communities where we live and work. Through innovative partnerships and programs that focus on community and economic development, education, and financial literacy, our goal is to provide relevant programs and services to those most in need.
Like other companies, we provide monetary support to nonprofits and community organizations, but this is only part of our formula. We follow a holistic approach to philanthropy that includes financial support, volunteerism, and leadership. Central to our philanthropic approach is Capital One’s award-winning Pro Bono Program. By offering specialized pro bono services in core business areas such as Brand Marketing, Finance, Human Resources, IT, Legal and Real Estate, we are able to identify the areas where nonprofits often face the biggest hurdles and help them to achieve desired results.
Through our pro bono program, Capital One’s vision is to teach sustainable, replicable business practices that allow our community partners to drive meaningful change in their organizations. Since 2008, more than 750 Capital One associates have donated nearly 25,000 hours to 315 nonprofit partners, resulting in $7M worth of services.

Over the 100 years of IBM’s existence, we have developed and refined a thoughtful and comprehensive approach to corporate citizenship that we believe aligns with IBM’s values and maximizes the positive impact of which we, as a global enterprise, are capable. We do this in four ways: We identify and act upon new opportunities to apply our technology and expertise to societal problems. We scale our existing programs and initiatives to achieve maximum benefit. We empower our employees and others to serve their communities.
We integrate corporate citizenship and social responsibility into every aspect of our company. We focus our community engagement and corporate service programs on specific societal issues, including the environment, community economic development, education, health, literacy, language and culture. These are areas of urgent societal needs where we can apply IBM’s technology and talent to solve problems, rather than simply making cash donations. We believe that direct action and collaboration, not spare change, are the path to real change. We are proud to support a Billion + Change!
