Ask most people, and they’ll tell you that it matters to them that their employer and companies they do business with are charitable. At NCR, we have a long, proud history of making the everyday easier not only for our customers and consumers, but also by supporting the communities in which we live and work through volunteerism and donations.
Over the past two years, the NCR Foundation has invested more than $2 million globally to support programs focused on education, disabilities, health issues and microfinance. In fact, as a result of NCR Foundation grants:

From Duluth, GA, US to Dubai, UAE and Iceland to India, NCR has more than 330 highly engaged champions, NCR Ambassadors, who lead volunteer activities and employee engagement events and celebrations. They collect funds, food, blood, books and blankets. They lead revitalization projects at schools and community centers. And they run, bike, and walk to raise awareness and donations for charity. NCR Ambassadors plant trees and recycle paper, bottles, and office equipment. They mentor children and host cricket and soccer clinics.
In 2015, Ambassadors hosted 270 events with over 25,000 participants! They organized food drives that fed 3,600 people and blood drives that contributed 1,033 pints of blood that will save 3,099 lives.
We also welcomed 45 channel partner ambassadors who have extended our philanthropic and brand reach the same way they extend NCR’s business in areas of the world where NCR does not have offices.

Responsible corporate citizenship is in our DNA. It dates back to the 1890s, when our then directors introduced a comprehensive social welfare program for NCR factory workers. And the tradition continues through the NCR Foundation and the global reach of the NCR ambassadors. Learn more about NCR’s corporate social responsibility here.
