To maximize our giving impact to partner nonprofit organizations, we look to align employee volunteer activities with grants made through the Hasbro Children’s Fund. In 2015, 96 percent of the organizations our employees donated time to received other philanthropic support from Hasbro.
For example, Team Hasbro volunteers with many different SeriousFun Children’s Network camps. In addition to CampOut employee teams will visit the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in Connecticut to help get camp ready before the next session of campers arrive. Employees have also volunteered at camp from our different offices in Los Angeles, CA (Painted Turtle Camp), Renton, WA (Camp Korey), U.K. (Over the Wall) and Italy (Dynamo Camp). SeriousFun Children’s Network is a longstanding philanthropic partner, and grant support through the Hasbro Children’s Fund is provided to support programs at SeriousFun camps where Hasbro has offices in the U.S., U.K., Italy and Ireland, while more than 8,500 toys and games are donated to 10 SeriousFun Camps worldwide.
Through generationOn, we offer U.S. employees opportunities to join in service projects with their children. Hasbro’s CEO also volunteers as the chair of generationOn’s annual benefit which took place in Los Angeles in 2015.
The Team Hasbro intranet portal includes a calendar of volunteer projects with sign-up opportunities throughout the year. Employees can also use a link to search the www.allforgood.org site for additional volunteer opportunities close to their home.
Our employees routinely volunteer at the Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Rhode Island by participating in Game Days, barbeques for kids, or delivering toys to patients. Every year, we lend one of our iconic brands to serve as a theme for the hospital’s annual fundraising ball. In 2015, the “NERF Ball” raised more than $1 million for the hospital.
