Local Community Impact

As part of DIRECTV's Corporate Citizenship strategy, we seek new ways to leverage the talent of our employees and the resources of our company to positively impact communities across the Americas. Employee volunteerism, cash donations, gift matching, in-kind contributions and one-on-one youth mentoring are just a few of the ways we help to make our communities stronger.

Whether we're building and beautifying parks and playgrounds, broadening the career horizons of young people or distributing school supplies to high-need students, we are expanding upon our efforts and finding impactful ways to contribute to hundreds of communities on two continents.
