Our mission is to advance the human rights and well-being of underserved people in places where Levi Strauss & Co. has a business presence.
For more 65 years, the foundation has embraced the energy and events of our time to advance pioneering social change in the areas of HIV/AIDS, worker rights, worker well-being and social justice.
We were one of the first corporate funders of HIV/AIDS response, and we've invested more than $76 million in the global response since 1983.
We've invested $10 million since 1997 in community organizations in key LS&Co. sourcing locations, and we've spent $5.5 million since 2011 to pilot, scale, measure impact and build the business case for the Worker Well-being (WWB) program.
We established a $1 million Rapid Response Fund to support vulnerable communities immigrants, refugees, the transgender community and ethnic and religious minorities impacted by the current political environment.
We invest $1.3 million annually in Employee Community Engagement initiatives, and we've spent $630K in disaster relief support globally in 2017.
