Vision and Mission

Sage Foundation

Helping disadvantaged communities in all 23 countries that we operate in

Sage Foundation supports tens of thousands of people in our local communities through more than 1,000 charities. All colleagues are invited to take five paid days a year to volunteer or fundraise for a charity close to their hearts. 

Sitting at the heart of Sage and led by CEO Steve Hare, Sage Foundation unifies colleagues and partners in a global program of social change philanthropy, transforming lives to support economic stability and social equality. 

All colleagues across our global markets are encouraged to dedicate five paid days a year to charities close to their hearts, through voluntary work and fundraising challenges. 

In particular, we take action to increase opportunities for fulfilment among young people, women, and military veterans to drive innovation, enhancing access to education, workforce development and exposure to entrepreneurship. 

We also proudly facilitate a culture of fast, responsive support for local need. Whether in the aftermath of forest fires in California, drought in South Africa, terror incidents in London, or a sudden shortage of help at a local foodbank, our colleagues are empowered to work with Sage Foundation to lend a hand. 

Our strategic objectives are aligned to six of the 17 United Nations sustainable development goals: education for all; gender equality; decent work opportunities; economic growth; innovation and meaningful partnerships.
