Global Month of Volunteering
PIMCO's Global Month of Volunteering was established in 2009 to elevate the volunteer efforts of our employees, worldwide. This annual tradition is a celebration of our longstanding commitment to our communities. Together, we build, enhance and effect meaningful social change.
PIMCO's Global Month of Volunteering (GMV) was started in 2009 as a way to collectively focus our time, skills and resources on positively impacting our communities around the globe. This PIMCO Acts initiative has proven to be popular and effective. We expanded our initial one week of volunteering to our current month of activities and increased employee engagement as a result.
Throughout GMV, we manifest our culture of service through community engagement and impact. Colleagues, families, and friends from across PIMCO's global offices find many ways to volunteer and give back to their communities by providing meals, gardening, teaching interview skills, mentoring youth, cleaning shelters, playgrounds, beaches, and parks, and so much more. In 2023, GMV kicked off with 184 events and 118 nonprofit partners worldwide.
Our GMV events support many underserved communities, including those that align with our focus on helping advance UN Sustainable Development Goals 2: Zero Hunger and 5: Gender Equality – two fundamental issues pivotal to human development and sustainable worldwide economic growth.
In light of recent critical events that have worsened conditions and depleted resources, it is an especially crucial time for struggling communities around the world. PIMCO has long understood both the opportunity and responsibility to effect meaningful social change, and we remain committed to advocating for those in need.
