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 a sponsor on its behalf.
We actively promote the values of giving and philanthropy among our 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. Liberty Media employees are actively involved in the organizations for which they act as a sponsor, often through volunteer work and board representation, and this investment of time is often far more impactful than our investment of dollars. Additionally, we offer all employees a 1:1 match on charitable contributions up to a limit of $10,000 per employee per year.
To be eligible for contributions from the LibertyGives Foundation, charities must:
- Be based in Colorado
- Be organized pursuant to section 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code
- Be sponsored by a Liberty Media employee
- Sponsors must have an established and current relationship with the organization
If you meet the aforementioned criteria for a LibertyGives Foundation grant, please work with your Liberty Media contact to submit an application.
Grant proposals for 2021 are due June 25th.
