DXC Technology consistently works to improve the lives of its employees, and the communities in which they live and work.

The company believes in equality for all employees, and its position as a global technology leader enables DXC to serve diverse customers and play a leadership role in the communities it serves.

Here are a just a few of DXC Technology's leading projects and efforts.

The DXC Foundation

The DXC Foundation is a registered U.S. charity that invests in community groups as a way to engage the company's employees and develop its relationships with clients, partners and communities. Its programs also strengthen DXC's business performance and enhance its global brand. Using targeted grants and programs, the DXC Foundation partners with its employees around the world, making it easy for them to make a difference both locally and globally. The DXC Foundation also oversees the DXC Gives program, which helps the communities in which employees live and do business. It also celebrates the volunteerism and dedication of the company's people.

In addition, the DXC Foundation sponsors a quarterly Charity Challenge. All DXC employees can enter, and the winners are given the opportunity to guide donations to the charities of their choice. DXC employees participate in the Challenge by submitting brief essays that describe acts of community service by DXC employees. The winners typically demonstrate excellence in collaboration, problem-solving, energy and community impact.

One program recently helped by the DXC Charity Challenge is Alzheimer Scotland. This group provides support and advice for those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and those who have family members suffering from this disease. DXC volunteers have helped the program by sponsoring fundraising events, including a Christmas Hackathon for girls under the age of seventeen.
