WPP companies undertake pro bono work and make charitable donations to good causes around the world. We provide services to many charities, NGOs and voluntary groups on a pro bono basis, forgoing a commercial fee. These campaigns are an opportunity for exceptionally creative, and often award-winning, work.

Our pro bono campaigns are valued by our pro bono clients and well liked by employees who find them a source of professional and personal satisfaction. This year we have produced a separate pro bono book to showcase our work.

We also make charitable donations and encourage employee volunteering.
