Why we do what we do

To unleash the power of entrepreneurship and build economically vibrant and thriving communities.

And, we’ve been doing it since 1998. The eBay Foundation partners with nonprofit organizations around the world to advance inclusive and equitable entrepreneurship for people and communities disproportionately affected by systemic oppression. And, our eBay employees play a big part in that. From driving local giving and volunteering in their communities, to working with us to match their donations and volunteer hours to the causes they are passionate about, the eBay Foundation is core to our culture.
