About ESPN Citizenship
At ESPN, we're inspired by the many athletes, fans and communities that are using sports to make the world a better place. We concentrate our impact on five key areas: Access to Sports, Leadership Through Sports, Good Neighbor grants, Environmental Sustainability and the V Foundation. Through our employee volunteerism, charitable giving and cause marketing programs, we aim to use the power of sports for social good.
