Corporate Giving

PR Newswire’s Corporate Giving Program

With bureaus in 14 countries, customers around the world and a diverse employee base, PR Newswire is committed to being a responsible global business, assisting the people and communities in which we work. Since our inception in 1954, PR Newswire employees have donated their time and money to numerous charities of their choice. Our efforts have helped to clothe the homeless, bring toys to children during the holidays, raise money for medical research organizations, provide food and other assistance in the face of natural disasters, and more.

In 2005, PR Newswire was provided the opportunity to formalize these efforts by a grant made through our parent company, United Business Media Limited. The grant has enabled PR Newswire to create a more comprehensive corporate giving program that focuses on international, national and local charities.

Since 2005, PR Newswire has donated to charities in the following areas:
  • Community-based initiatives
  • Media and Communications
  • Education/Literacy
  • Health/Disability
  • Relief of Poverty/Homelessness
PR Newswire also provides assistance in the following ways:
  • Employee matched giving
  • Food/Clothing/Blanket drives
  • Volunteer assistance
  • In-kind donation of services
