The Kroll Charitable Foundation is committed to nurturing innovative ideas, impacting economic and social issues and enabling progress in underserved communities around the globe. Its focus is on non-profit organizations that:
- Align with the firm’s core values
- Support inclusion and diversity
- Address critical needs or disaster response in areas where Kroll employees live and work
- Promote financial literacy and opportunity
COVID-19 and Disaster Response
Supporting the COVID ZERO Business Coalition, one of the first donors to pledge funds in support of vaccine research and development, the foundation granted its largest single donation of $250,000 to the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), who comprise the COVID ZERO vaccine development unit.
When the pandemic surge in India depleted medical supplies, Kroll was able to provide critical funding through the U.S. India Friendship Alliance (USIFA) and U.S. India Strategic Partnership Forum (USISPF) to deliver lifesaving resources to the frontline medical workers.
Following the large-scale impact of winter storms in Texas in 2021, the foundation made a grant to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund to support those in need.
In addition to the foundation’s work, Kroll supports employee-directed philanthropy including volunteerism and pro-bono work.
In collaboration with Salesforce, we partnered with Story Pirate Changemakers, donating $35,000 in support of their mission to improve children’s literacy. Over 400 colleagues from around the world read and responded to over 1,100 stories written by children across 15 countries.
Kroll Cares Month
September is Kroll Cares Month–a dedicated, month-long opportunity for our global employees to give back and support the causes that align with our values. After two years of primarily virtual volunteering activities, Kroll Cares Month is a chance for our people to come together in-person, connect with one another and give back to the communities where we live and work.
Across our offices globally, we are organizing blood and food drives, cleaning up parks and even working with therapy pets, among so many other great initiatives. Kroll colleagues are excited to come together in a meaningful way to donate our time and resources to our local communities.
In 2021, we partnered with a number of organizations to provide pro-bono work including the Innocence Project to exonerate an innocent man after 19 years in prison and worked with Unchained at Last on an initiative to abolish forced child marriages in the U.S.
