Community involvement

You’ve found the right place if you want to make a difference beyond your job. Caring about the communities where we’re located and the people who live there is important to us and fundamental to who we are as an organization. Our commitment to building stronger communities is driven by our associates’ passions and interests.

Each year, our associates support more than 3,500 nonprofit organizations. In turn, Capital Group and The Capital Group Companies Charitable Foundation enhance that support with additional funding in the form of grants and matching gifts. During the past 10 years, we've contributed more than US$239 million to charitable organizations around the world. And it’s all because of our associates.

Our Programs

Associate Matching Gifts Program

Associates’ personal contributions to charitable organizations are matched two-for-one, up to a maximum of US$5,000 in matching funds per fiscal year.

Dollars for Doers Program

Associates who volunteer can turn their volunteer time into dollars. Every 10 hours of volunteer time earn a US$100 contribution to an eligible nonprofit, up to a maximum of US$500 per fiscal year.

Grant Making Program

Associates who volunteer or serve on the board of an eligible nonprofit can request a grant on that organization’s behalf.

Milestone Anniversary Donation Program

To celebrate long-tenured associates, the company makes a contribution to a nonprofit organization of the associate’s choosing at each fifth anniversary of employment.

Community Action Days

Associates from different departments and business areas join together for daylong volunteer projects at local nonprofits. They meet important community needs while associates have an opportunity to build relationships with their peers.
