Visa and Visa Foundation make charitable donations and grants to advance the goals and strategic priorities we have set for enabling individuals, businesses, and economies to thrive. As such, we do not accept unsolicited requests and/or proposals for charitable funding. If you believe your organization’s programs align strongly with our strategic focus areas and we should learn more about you, please send a brief introductory email to [email protected] for grant requests and [email protected] for sponsorships and employee engagement. If we are interested in learning more about your organization, we will be in contact.
Visa has governance in place to ensure that all donations and grants comply with U.S. and foreign laws and regulations. We do not make contributions to political parties or candidates, political organizations, lobbying groups or individuals, except where authorized under and made in strict compliance with applicable jurisdictional campaign finance laws and regulations. We do not make donations to religious organizations, churches, seminaries, theological institutions and Bible colleges, unless the donation is designated for ongoing non-secular community service programs open to all persons, and which do not propagate belief in any specific faith as a requirement for receiving services. We do not make contributions to organizations that discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of their activities or operations.
