Supporting the communities around us


Wellington aims to make ongoing positive financial, social, and environmental impacts in the communities we work and live in. The Wellington Foundations support programs and organizations seeking to close the opportunity and achievement gaps for youth and young adults in historically underserved communities.

Wellington Management Foundations

Wellington provides global support to programs and organizations that are helping to improve education and educational opportunities for youth in historically underserved communities.

We are helping to provide life changing educational opportunities and helping to open up pathways for young people to succeed in school and in life.

Firm giving and employee engagement

We invest in our communities through charitable giving and volunteering. These are three of our initiatives:

Annual appeal

Employees can make contributions to community organizations and global relief through payroll deductions.

Gift matching program

This policy enables employees to have their donations made to a nonprofit community organization matched by the firm.

Volunteer program

Each employee is offered two business days a year to volunteer with a nonprofit community organization.
