At DIRECTV, we know that television doesn't exist in a vacuum. Our customers are as diverse as their viewing habits, and the shows they watch influence their interactions with the world around them.
Since television is such a powerful medium, we choose to use it to achieve a humanitarian goal, going beyond the living room to actively support social needs in the United States. To us, being a corporate citizen means making DIRECTV work for the common good. Our company donates profits and product, simultaneously investing in and helping to benefit both the community and the future of the television experience.
citizenship efforts primarily center on the communities where DIRECTV employees live
and work, and on non-profit partners with a nationwide focus. The causes we champion include:
Promoting healthy lifestyles in order to prevent life-threatening disease.
Fostering learning at all levels and stages of study, especially K-12.
Providing aid through the innovative use of our satellite television product.
DIRECTV typically supports U.S.-based non-profit organizations with which we have previously established relationships. DIRECTV does not currently operate a grant program, and does not seek or review unsolicited donation applications and project proposals.
