The Verizon Foundation dedicates technical, financial and human resources to help make a positive impact in communities across the country and around the world. We focus on projects that demonstrate the use of Verizon's technology in addressing social issues—particularly sustainability, education, and health care.
Verizon is engaged in Internet safety on multiple fronts, providing customers with an industry-leading slate of online cyber-security tools and education programs to empower educators, parents and children. The company also works closely with law enforcement to assist with investigations involving crimes against children, and with partners to deliver tools and information to various segments of the community. Verizon has long been a supporter of efforts to encourage content providers to voluntarily label their Web sites; raise parental awareness of the benefits of labeling; and educate decision makers about the desirability of self-regulation of online content.
