IBMers have desire and talent. The IBM Volunteers program has the resources. Together, let's help the world!

Our initiative

IBMers have a rich history of volunteering. The company’s culture of giving continues to attract and inspire employees dedicated to improving the lives of others.

As IBM reinvents itself in the era of AI and cloud, we continue to broaden the ways we use technology to drive social impact. For volunteering, that means cross-enterprise coordination of campaigns, individual service, and opportunities for donating money.

Whether you’re a recent arrival or a longstanding member of the IBM community, we have the resources you need to make a lasting impact.
