Inside Sony Music
- SMG Global Social Justice Fund Update
- Nov 23, 2021
Sony Music Group’s commitment to corporate giving is at the heart of our philanthropic programs and activities across the globe – from the programs led by our businesses to the partnerships we forge with artists, songwriters, and other creators.
We’ve taken action and provided funding to support communities that need it most, inside and outside the music industry. Now, the Sony Music Group Global Social Justice Fund is on track to connect with nearly 400 community partners around the world. Together with these groups, we aim to help advance bipartisan solutions in the areas of civic engagement, criminal justice reform, and education. You can see our full list of partners here.
And that list is about to grow—because today, we’re excited to share the news that we’ve started outreach to organizations for the fourth round of funding from the Sony Music Group Global Social Justice Fund. Our global task force leaders and their teams are hard at work determining the next pool of community partners to receive support.
We are eager to work in collaboration with more nonpartisan groups whose efforts align with our three giving pillars. Whether we’re supporting new community organizations or recommitting to existing nonprofits, our goal is the same: to empower our employees to make change happen—locally and abroad.
You’ll hear more from us about the new round of funding in the coming months.
In the meantime, we’re excited to separately kick off this year’s Season of Giving campaign, which begins next week on Giving Tuesday.
Thank you for all that you do to serve our communities in need around the world.
