Open the door to a better future

We believe that knowledge fuels opportunity. The core of our business is to provide insights that help equip participants in the global financial markets to understand risks and move forward with critical insight. Our approach to corporate social responsibility (CSR) is rooted in that same belief. We seek to empower people with the knowledge, resources and confidence they need to create a better future — for themselves, their communities and the environment.

Moody’s Foundation supports organizations with demonstrated success in one of our three focus areas.
