As we empower the next generation to tackle life off the wall, we’re working to build a safe space for you to express yourself—all day, every day. Whether we’re building partnerships, volunteering or empowering employees, we’re committed to building a better world.
We firmly believe that access to creativity through a variety of platforms can have a profound impact on society. We go beyond stating our mission—we stand by it. Keeping corporate citizenship in mind, we’re giving back to our community in several key ways:
Uplifting marginalized voices
Embracing corporate accountability
Providing wider access to skateboarding worldwide
Setting the standard for competition equality
Donating our time and money to causes we believe in
Trade chequebooks for checkerboards
When we talk about checkerboards it’s not about the most money at Vans—it’s about the most meaning. Social good remains at the forefront of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives. We’re always seeking to expand our donation efforts to support local organisations and major causes that we relate to.
From racial justice to suicide prevention, we’re not afraid to put our money where our soul is. Whether we’re offering in-kind donations or just volunteering our time, there is a wide world out there of people that could use a hand. When implementing CSR initiatives, we are committed to improving the quality of life of those we love.
