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. eBay Foundation partners with nonprofit organizations that are addressing and removing barriers to entrepreneurship for people who identify with historically excluded groups. We also support our employees with meaningful giving and volunteering opportunities. 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.
