Philanthropy & Volunteerism
Nasdaq Corporate Volunteer Program. Nasdaq’s philanthropic endeavors are driven by our associates’ commitment to being involved in their communities. Each year, Nasdaq full and part-time employees are given two Corporate Volunteer Days. Not only can these events provide opportunities for individual employee personal growth and skill development, but also can improve the communities in which we live.
Junior Achievement. Recognizing the growing demand for high school-level business education programs that are rigorous, relevant, and can be applied in the real world, Junior Achievement New York and the Nasdaq Educational Foundation once again partnered up on a Business Plan Competition to seed NYC and Long Island students' interest in entrepreneurship as a pathway to economic and social empowerment.
The Nasdaq Educational Foundation. The foundation fosters collaboration and initiatives for innovative educational programs and charitable activities. For example, The Edward Lowe Foundation received a $730,000 grant from The Nasdaq Educational Foundation to establish a new research and education institute focusing on job growth and capital access for developing companies in the United States. The Nasdaq Nordic Foundation. This organization supports scientific research that enhances the prosperity of financial markets in Finland and Sweden, as well as other markets.
