Giving Back Never Goes Out of Style

Levi Strauss Foundation responds to issues affecting marginalized and disenfranchised communities. The Levi Strauss Foundation is the corporate foundation of Levi Strauss & Co., one of the world's largest brand-name apparel companies and a global leader in jeanswear. The Foundation’s philanthropic work is grounded in the company's values of originality, integrity, empathy and courage. Their mission is to advance the human rights and well-being of under-served people around the globe in places where Levi Strauss & Co. has a business presence. Sarah Negron, Finance & Grants Coordinator at Levi Strauss Foundation, and Jason McBriarty, Director, Levi Strauss Foundation at Levi Strauss & Co. discuss grantmaking strategies and history before diving into recent pivots addressing racial injustice, responding to COVID-19, and investing in voter engagement in marginalized communities. They will also discuss how they align on messaging and values with our parent company Levi Strauss &Co. (LS&Co.)
