Since 2020, we helped deliver and procure much-needed medical equipment and supplies, launched homecare solutions, and touched the lives of several thousand patients.

McKinsey Gives

Donating to causes that are making a positive impact, with individual contributions amplified by match funding from the firm

2021 impact: $4.6M ($3 million in individual contributions, supplemented by firm match)

2022 impact: $28M to support the humanitarian response in Ukraine and beyond

Day of Service

Each year, every McKinsey office in 65+ countries around the world chooses a day for all colleagues to volunteer with local organizations. We call it our Day of Service, and it’s a way for us to use our greatest resource – the capabilities and experience of our people – to forge stronger connections within our communities and contribute to causes that have a positive impact on society.

Supporting communities around the world

We recognize that each local community faces its own unique challenges. More than half our pro bono support effects change at the local community level, and by partnering and collaborating with local leaders from a range of organizations, we advance social impact programs that are tailored to each community’s most pressing needs and concerns.
