National and Cultural Affairs
Xerox supports a variety of organizations that address issues facing our nation, help those in need, or honor veterans or victims of national tragedies. We also support many cultural and arts institutions in the communities where our employees live and work.
Organizations that address national problems include:
NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Partnership for Drug-Free Kids, Paralyzed Veterans of America, National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse, Minority Corporate Counsel Association and Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund.
Cultural organizations include:
Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, Ballet Hispanico, Stepping Stones Museum for Children, Garth Fagan Dance and many more.
In 2015, we paid membership dues to 40 non-profit organizations, including Business Roundtable, Council on Foreign Relations, Conference Board, National Minority Supplier Development Council, American National Standards Institute and the Technology CEO Council.
We invest in the American Red Cross for its efforts to respond quickly and effectively to natural disasters. We invest in Save the Children and Concern Worldwide, bolstering their ability to address urgent humanitarian needs across the world. Over the last year, our support went to those affected by the Syrian refugee crisis.
From habitat preservation to sustainability research and the promotion of environmental consciousness, we are committed to the protection of the environment for future generations. A grant to The Nature Conservancy helps continue pioneering work in promoting sustainable forestry practices in the Northern Boreal Forests of Canada.

We support the New York Hall of Science, the NYU Tandon School of Engineering, the University of Rochester and the Rochester Institute of Technology.
Other grants benefit Outward Bound; The Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk, Connecticut; National Aquarium in Baltimore, Maryland; SUNY College of Environment and Forestry; SoundWaters and many other organizations such as Discovery Center, Mill River Park Collaborative and institutions that work toward the goal of a sustainable world.
