Hasbro makes a social impact in communities by providing Access to Play to underserved and historically marginalized communities, delivering Play Relief in times of crisis and uncertainty, and upskilling the next generation of Play Makers. In 2023, Hasbro's initiatives positively impacted over 3.9 million individuals worldwide.

Making a difference in the community is also deeply ingrained in Hasbro’s company culture, and employees are the driving force behind its philanthropic impact. With over 82% of Hasbro’s global workforce volunteering last year, it's clear that a commitment to social impact is a core value at Hasbro.

"Expectations for companies to be leaders in civic engagement continue to increase," said Jennifer Sirangelo, President and CEO, Points of Light. "Hasbro demonstrates how to maximize the full range of their assets – from people power to policy to financial contributions – to meet pressing needs and create thriving communities where they live and work. We’re thrilled to uplift and celebrate them as an honoree of The Civic 50 2024."

Methodology

The Civic 50 honorees are companies with annual U.S. revenues of at least $1 billion and are selected based on four dimensions of their corporate citizenship and social impact programs: investment of resources and volunteerism, integration across business functions, institutionalization through policies, and systems and impact measurement. The Civic 50 survey is administered by True Impact, and the results are analyzed by VeraWorks. The survey instrument consists of quantitative and multiple-choice questions that inform the scoring process. The Civic 50 is the only survey and ranking system that exclusively measures corporate community engagement.
