The LibertyGives Foundation is a Colorado non-profit organization formed by Liberty Media in 2007 to encourage and promote charitable giving. In 2010, the LibertyGives Foundation established a permanent theme for corporate giving: to support charities that address the needs of underprivileged and at-risk youth in Colorado, with a focus on proactive and preventative services. All recipient organizations have a Liberty Media employee who is actively engaged with the entity and acts as sponsor on its behalf.
Liberty Media actively promotes the values of giving and philanthropy among its employee base. Since its inception, the LibertyGives Foundation has contributed over $7 million to various recipient organizations. However, the reach of LibertyGives extends beyond these monetary contributions.
