Sun's philanthropy program stretches all around the globe. Whether it is Sun volunteers serving a meal to the homeless in California or monetary donations improving the lives of tsunami victims, Sun employees have impacted the lives of millions since the Sun Foundation was formed more than 15 years ago. Sun believes in doing well and doing good, which is evidenced in the Foundation's mission "to promote Sun's brand, enhance our communities and develop our people through
community and educational initiatives." Sun empowers its employees to give back to the community. We believe that the intellectual strength, passion and talent of Sun employees can be leveraged to help meet the needs of the communities where we live, work and do business worldwide.
