The MasterCard Foundation
WEBER SHANDWICK HAS PARTNERED WITH THE MASTERCARD FOUNDATION since it was established in 2006. A private, global foundation with over $10 billion in assets, The MasterCard Foundation is focused on catalyzing prosperity in Sub-Saharan Africa by advancing youth learning and promoting financial inclusion. Our work focuses on shaping communications strategies and creative content for the Foundation to help the organization build awareness and engagement for its work, deliver greater impact and advance its mission. We have partnered on the development of first-person stories around the Foundation’s $500 million Scholars Program, which will educate and employ 15,000 talented yet financially disadvantaged youth who will lead change in Africa. We have also supported the Foundation as it refines its digital strategy, providing guidance on the evolution of the organization’s social platforms.
