The S&P Global Foundation focuses its efforts where we can make a real difference: Diversifying Technology & Data and Creating Environmental Resilience.

Our Grantee Partners

By partnering with local organizations, we support the commitment and efforts of our people to help power thriving sustainable communities around the world. We also partner with organizations such as Reboot Representation to inspire students from diverse backgrounds to become STEM leaders. We unlock economic opportunity for skilled immigrants and refugees by supporting Breaking Barriers. We partner with Resilient Cities Network to future-proof communities and critical infrastructure. And we harness the vast knowledge and experience of our people to connect mentors with purpose-driven entrepreneurs through MicroMentor.
