The mission of the VMware Foundation is to provide a platform to amplify the contributions of VMware people to their causes of choice and inspire the Citizen Philanthropist in all of us. Together, we are a force for good that propels our collective impact in the global community.
Thanks to VMware people's passion for service, living our shared EPIC2 value of Community, and being active stewards of what matters in their communities. It's because of VMware people that VMware received this incredible recognition.
The VMware Foundation’s 2016 Collective Impact infographic reflects how VMware people contributed their time, talents, and resources to the causes closest to their hearts. In 2016, 16,948 VMware people worldwide (that’s 85% of us!) joined the VMware Foundation in giving back by supporting more than 7,400 non-profits in 100 countries. This is the power of collective impact.
