Advance communities and society
Creating opportunity in the communities we impact
We recognize the important role Fiserv plays in the communities in which we live, work and do business.
Access to finance
As a leading global provider of payments and financial technology, Fiserv seeks to provide our clients and their customers with innovative product offerings that increase financial inclusion, assist the unbanked and underbanked and provide value-added services that help our clients and the communities in which they do business succeed.
Philanthropy & community investment
Our community partnerships help us to maximize investments and increase our reach. For example, the GrowHU accelerator program unites diverse entrepreneurs from Howard University and other HBCU communities and supports them in taking their businesses to the next level. We work with the Girl Scouts of the USA to boost financial inclusion and entrepreneurship with the Girl Scout Cookie Business badge. Our Global Services team in India established an inaugural STEM Laboratory at the Government Model Higher Secondary School in Saidapet, Chennai.
Fiserv provides small business solutions and resources designed to support veterans and military-connected entrepreneurs. In 2022, we launched a series of Military Entrepreneurship Forums. These forums - leveraging our partnerships with the Institute for Veterans and Military Families, the Small Business Administration, regional chambers and others - bring together local public and private sectors in large cities to create connectivity, networking opportunities and resources for veteran and military-spouse business owners.
In 2020, Fiserv launched Back2Business to support small, minority-owned businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the program's inception, we have provided more than 1,400 grants in the U.S. and nearly 200 grants in the U.K., totaling approximately $16 million in grants.
We believe integrating diverse suppliers into our strategic sourcing and procurement processes generates efficiency and innovation, and increases opportunities for diverse-owned or -controlled businesses to grow and thrive.
