UBS Community Corps

At UBS, employee volunteering and giving is the heart of how we live our purpose through our culture of service. Anchored by our annual Season of Service campaign, UBS Community Corps mobilizes employees across the Americas to create local impact in their communities through hands-on and skills-based volunteering. In 2021, 10,000 employees stepped up to connect for a cause virtually and in-person, volunteering 57,000+ hours in a variety of projects including: hunger relief projects at home, mentoring students in preparation for college and careers, alleviating social isolation for the elderly, and more.

UBS employees don’t just lend their time and talent however, they also donate to local nonprofits and participate in issue-based giving campaigns. Last year, employees helped raise more than $20,000 through a special matching gifts campaign to support the AAPI community, benefiting organizations combatting anti-Asian hate and discrimination.
