Commitment to Action

Walmart Disaster Relief and Resilience

Commitment by

Walmart

In 2015, Walmart and Walmart Foundation committed to formalize its support to communities before, during, and after tragedies by leveraging its local presence in communities around the world to invest in communities to become more prepared and resilient. To do so, Walmart will 1) continue to provide cash and in-kind relief in the wake of disasters affecting communities, 2) convene the global and U.S. disaster relief sector to share sector best practices; and strengthen partners in the sector through capacity-building grants, 3) increase engagement of Walmart associates in relief and resiliency efforts, and 4) strengthen the preparedness and response capacity of local communities through local grants, engaging Walmart customers, and funding resilience initiatives in select cities. Over five years, Walmart and Walmart Foundation will provide $25 million of grants to support these efforts.
