Lobbying and political donations

In countries where it is consistent with applicable law, individuals working at WPP make personal voluntary political contributions directly to candidates for office, and three of our businesses – Wexler & Walker, Hill & Knowlton and Burson-Marsteller – also maintain political action committees (PACs) which accept voluntary donations from employees to support political candidates.

WPP does not make political contributions from corporate resources with the occasional exception of very small, lawful contributions to local candidates in the US.

WPP has on rare occasions sought to influence public policy on its own behalf, operating through its own companies.
