Volunteering is an important and enduring part of our company’s culture. Through our Disney VoluntEARS program, the company encourages passionate employees around the globe to donate their time and talents to their local communities. Our employees and cast members worldwide have collectively contributed more than 13 million hours of service to their communities.

VoluntEARS in Action

Delivering Food to Those in Need

Disney VoluntEARS team up with food banks in our local communities to deliver food staples and fresh produce to thousands of community members facing food insecurity.

Back to School Support

Helping children get a head start on the new school year, Disney VoluntEARS donate much needed school supplies to organizations in communities where our employees live and work.

Disney Blanketeers

More than 20 years ago, a group of Disney VoluntEARS started gathering as “Blanketeers” to create handmade booties, caps, blankets, and more, which are donated to children’s hospitals, animal shelters, and other community agencies helping those in need.

Great Barrier Reef Project

Disney VoluntEARS from around the world participate in the Great Reef Census, a unique opportunity during Earth Month to analyze and review online images that help conservationists’ efforts to protect the Great Barrier Reef.

Park and City Beautification

Disney VoluntEARS collaborate with multiple nonprofits on park and city beautification projects. For example, to honor the Disney VoluntEARS program’s 40th anniversary, Disney VoluntEARS from Disneyland Resort, along with their friends, family, community members, and representatives from JMh / Love Anaheim, came together to beautify Pearson Park in Anaheim, California.

Skills-Based Volunteering

Disney’s uniquely talented VoluntEARS contribute their professional skills to help organizations solve some of their pressing operational issues, enabling them to increase their ability to deliver community services.

Disney VoluntEARS Grants

Through the Disney VoluntEARS Grants program, employees and cast members can turn their eligible hours of volunteer service into financial contributions from the company to eligible charities of their choice.
