S&P Global Foundation
Our essential intelligence powers inclusive sustainable economies and thriving global communities.
S&P Global Foundation is more than philanthropy—it’s making a difference by finding essential connections between our skills and the needs of society.
At S&P Global, we develop and deliver essential intelligence. Data and analytics meet strategic insight, in-depth research and trusted benchmarks so that companies, governments, and individuals can make decisions with conviction.
The same drive for relevance shapes our engagement approach—we make sure the work we do has a genuine impact on the communities in which we live. We focus our efforts where our skills can make a real difference: Elevating People, Promoting Sustainability, and Supporting Women Entrepreneurs.
Our Foundation’s two primary focus areas for grant making address issues that are essential to our long-term sustainability as a business and provide maximum opportunities to engage our employees and leverage our extensive expertise.
By partnering with local organizations, we support our employees’ commitment to help power thriving sustainable communities around the world.
We also partner with nonprofits such as FIRST Robotics to inspire students from diverse backgrounds to be STEM leaders. We unlock opportunity for skilled immigrants by supporting Upwardly Global. We partner with Kiva to provide women entrepreneurs with essential capital, as well as sharing our knowledge and experience through employee-led mentorships.
When we partner to support underrepresented populations, the diversity of skill, experience and creative thinking makes the workforce stronger. It makes us stronger, too.
