Elevating Communities Through Committed Engagement

At Broadridge, we do well by doing right. That's not a feel-good slogan – it's a core value driving our commitment to service.

Corporate Social Responsibility

We understand that success is always mutual, which is why we've created a culture at Broadridge where the highest goal is to empower others to achieve more — whether they be business partners or underserved individuals in the communities where we work and live. By partnering with community organizations, providing educational opportunities in underserved areas, donating resources to charitable causes and simply volunteering our time, we hope to elevate our communities and extend success where success is demanded.

It's partly about our commitment to service and partly just the way we do business.


There's a direct connection between employee engagement, client satisfaction, and the creation of securityholder value — a concept known by many as the Service Profit Chain. At Broadridge, we put this idea to work in our communities, just as we do for our valued partners. We recognize that the stronger our commitments to the communities around us, the more we're both empowered to grow and achieve — and hence the more value we're able to provide to the marketplace. In other words, we prize our CSR efforts as a win-win-win, the result being a stronger company, deepened relationships, and a better world to live in.

Broadridge Foundation

At the heart of our CSR efforts is the Broadridge Foundation, which identifies meaningful ways to engage with our communities to make a local impact. Through the Foundation, we direct resources to charitable causes, develop community focused action plans, and provide donation-matching for each of our associates, among other efforts.

Some of our most notable Foundation-led efforts empower Broadridge associates to lead and participate in projects that matter to them and their communities. While numerous such initiatives take place across our organization, we have highlighted a select few below.


Providing education in India with the MV Foundation

Residential Bridge Camps

In partnership with the India-based MV Foundation, Broadridge helps educate children who have been subjected to child labor by providing complete financial support of boarding schools known as Residential Bridge Camps.

  • With help from hundreds of India-based Broadridge volunteers, more than 2,000 students have successfully transitioned from bonded labor into our “pre-education" system
  • More than 1,200 children have since graduated into the formal Indian education system, and over 60 now pursue higher education while 10 have earned the equivalent of Bachelor’s Degrees.

Sri Vidhyas Centre for the Special Children

We have also supported the Sri Vidhyas Centre, an institution where physically and mentally challenged children from all backgrounds can learn the skills needed to live a productive life.

  • Through contributions from Broadridge and its associates, the school recently constructed a five-story learning center in Hyderabad, India
  • The centre is staffed by trained professionals and equipped with classrooms, a residential hostel facility, medical services, a yoga and meditation hall, and an indoor, multipurpose auditorium
  • With our support, the Sri Vidhyas program has grown from serving just eight students over a decade ago, to more than 160 annually

Promoting financial literacy with the SIFMA Foundation

As a financial solutions provider, we believe that it's critical to lend our expertise to young adults, especially those in underserved communities. Broadridge has partnered with the SIFMA Foundation and their “Invest It Forward" campaign in support of this goal.

  • We provide both financial resources and processing infrastructure for educational initiatives such as the Stock Market Game. In addition Broadridge associates have volunteered their time in activities such as facilitating learning in classrooms and reviewing essays submitted by students
  • Such programs teach critical financial skills and decision-making strategies to young adults from all walks of life, providing a solid foundation for a career in finance when they exit the classroom

Developing STEM skills with NPower

With our partner NPower, Broadridge aims to provide STEM-related educational opportunities to disadvantaged young adults.

  • Through financial underwriting of NPower and the volunteer efforts of Broadridge associates, we help deliver hands-on STEM education for schools and non-profits
  • Through NPower's Community Corps and Technology Service Corps, we provide free technical classes and resources
  • This ultimately helps to strongly position young individuals for a career in information technology

Enabling associate community service and matching associate donations

At Broadridge, we know that engagement happens from the bottom up, so we strive to provide each of our associates with the tools they need to address the problems that matter to them. Toward that goal, we provide each Broadridge associate with three paid days annually for volunteer service — whether that be in local schools, on community building projects or for any cause they feel is worth pursuing.

While volunteer service embodies the core values of our CSR program, we understand that impactful solutions require strong financial backing. Through our Broadridge Matching Gift Program, we match the charitable donations of every part or full-time Broadridge associate, dollar for dollar.

Reducing our environmental impact

Consistent with the need for corporations to thoughtfully engage with the world around them, we strive to continually reduce our environmental impact through the efforts of our Broadridge Environmental Committee (BEC). While the BEC pursues numerous objectives, one particular area of recent focus has been in the reduction of paper waste — general strategies for which were recently discussed in an article published in Forbes by our Director and Chief Executive Officer, Rich Daly.

Such efforts have made promising success. During the recent proxy season, we were able to reduce the volume of mailed proxy packages by 54 percent through edelivery and e-voting, representing a reduction of 160 million envelopes and printed reports. In addition, we practice sustainable paper sourcing through the use of FSC-certified paper products, and we partner with Global ReLeaf to plant new trees in 44 countries and every U.S. state.
