Global Growth invests in companies that create good. Our companies make healthcare more effective and affordable, make credit more accessible, help people buy their first homes, bring lifesaving therapies to people in their homes, provide security for online transactions and much more. Each Global Growth company also supports its community in multiple ways.
We at Global Growth pride ourselves on being great global citizens. We support worthy causes and programs around the world and our employees donate hundreds of volunteer hours. Here are just a few examples:
Global Growth participates in food security programs wherever its employees live. We have donated more than a million meals through programs such as the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina; Akshaya Patra in Noida, India; Samarthanam Trust for the Disabled in New Delhi; Sacred Heart Food Bank in Richmond, Virginia; the Food Bank of the Rockies in Denver, CO; the Food Bank of Cebu, Philippines; the Food Bank of Mykoliav, Ukraine; and the Food Bank in Sofia Bulgaria. We have also provided nutrition information support through the Special Olympics of North Carolina and Housing Families First in Richmond, Virginia.
Global Growth has been involved in Ukraine for three years. Before the war, Global Growth provided food assistance. Since the invasion we have provided assistance in many other ways. We provided our employees with funds they could use to move themselves and their families to safety. We also give our employees funds to donate to the causes they see doing the most good on the ground in Ukraine. And we opened operations in Poland to enable companies to easily hire people from Ukraine displaced by the conflict.
Global Growth has provided funding and volunteers for healthcare camps in India’s New Delhi Capital region that have provided cataract surgery to hundreds of people and eye exams to thousands. Our employees plan to expand the camps to cities outside of the capital region in 2023.
Global Growth is the largest donor to Interrogating Justice, a non-profit that has served more than 375,000 justice-impacted people in its first 18 months. Through the website How To Justice, Global Growth donations fund the provision of simple, easy-to-read and easy-to-search legal information to people who are involved with the justice system. They also fund the Justice Resource Database, the largest directory of housing, legal and employment resources for people who are coming out of incarceration.
