Responsible Leadership: Moving Forward, Giving Back


For over half a century, we — our associates, the company, our foundation — have been promoting sustainable change by sharing what we know, volunteering our time, and giving generously to the global communities we serve.

Since the first charitable donation in 1954, New Balance has grown its commitment to the communities we serve. While we emphasize supporting the communities in our own backyard, we also strive to move the world. Through the New Balance Foundation, corporate giving, volunteer opportunities and owned production facilities, New Balance maintains our founding values, our culture of Responsible Leadership, and our ability to give back. We know we must do well, but we must also do good.

“Responsible leadership has always been at the heart of our organization. Not a buzz word, not a flavor of the month, not something you can learn in a three-day seminar. We realized that this is moral fiber that is woven into our culture. It is part of who we are and what we strive to be.” — Anne Davis, New Balance Vice Chair
