What We Stand For

At VMware, who we are fuels what we do.
Our Foundation exists to amplify our people’s personal passions for the causes closest to their hearts.
This means that we believe everyone has something to contribute.
We call this Citizen Philanthropy.

Citizen Philanthropy is about the power of choice.
The choice to contribute where and how you choose.
The choice to give more to each other.
The choice to learn and grow through service.

Citizen Philanthropy is about the power of collective impact.
The impact of combining our time, talent and resources to create networks of giving.
The impact of knowing that our individual actions matter because
Big things have small beginnings.

We know that each of us has what it takes to make change happen.
To be the active steward of what matters in our community.
We are all Citizen Philanthropists.
Serve. Learn. Inspire.
