OppenheimerFunds is proud to serve our communities through an active, hands-on approach. “The Right Way to Change Perspectives” philanthropy program received more support than ever in 2015, as employees rolled up their sleeves to make a difference in the lives of those in need.

41 employees volunteered to work overseas as part of the firm’s partnership with Cross-Cultural Solutions, an organization that believes in changing the world through “small, personal acts of kindness and selflessness.” Our volunteers worked in an orphanage in Costa Rica.

Other employees taught math to students in Denver and New York City as part of the firm’s partnership with the National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath). The “Infinite Potential” program is designed to promote mathematical literacy and affinity among America’s youth. Volunteers included OppenheimerFunds CEO Art Steinmetz, who taught basic math concepts to first and second graders.

Employees also volunteered quality time to 60 other organizations as part of VTOP, the firm’s volunteer time-off program, and increased their matching gift donations to more than 650 charities.
