Local Giving

We partner with organizations that make a difference in improving our communities. Where possible, we connect our community support efforts to our core focus on financial inclusion. Visa is proud to support such groups as:

  • Women's Initiative for Self Employment (WISE)
    (San Francisco Bay Area)
  • St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
    (Miami, Florida)
  • Mainly I Love Kids
  • Instituto Empreender
  • Becalos
  • Starfish Greathearts Foundation
    (South Africa)
  • Starlight Children's Foundation
  • China Foundation for Development of Financial Education

In 2011, we were proud to earn a place on the San Francisco Business Times list of Top Corporate Philanthropists in the Bay Area.

"Our organization could not achieve our mission-reaching disadvantaged children and youth who fall through the cracks-without the help of our volunteer community, including our friends at Visa."
