COMMUNITY SERVICE AWARD

PwC Charitable Foundation’s Earn Your Future®

Accepted by: Shannon L. Schuyler

Principal, Chief Purpose Officer and Corporate Responsibility Leader; President, PwC Charitable Foundation

PwC has developed Earn Your Future® (EYF), a program developed by PwC, that began with a vision: leveraging their best assets – their people’s talent and time, as well as their financial resources – to develop the financial skills of young people in our communities. Their tools not only help students develop financial acumen but also challenge them to prepare for the jobs of tomorrow that don’t exist today, the skills needed for those jobs, and the social issues to be solved through their talents.

PwC set out to reach more than 2.5 million students and educators with an initial commitment of $160 million, including one million service hours. Since FY13, their partners and staff have given over 800,000 service hours, reached 3.5 million students and educators, and made an investment of over $80 million. In FY15, PwC raised the stakes to $190 million.
