Special Interests

Supporting our nation’s veterans and disaster relief efforts

We partner with organizations that create opportunities for our nation's heroes and help our communities around the world overcome natural disasters.


We believe strongly in supporting those who have given the most to our country – our service members and veterans. That's why in 2010, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation committed $10 million over five years to help our nation's heroes find employment when they come home. Then in 2011, we doubled that number to $20 million. Every day we're looking for new ways to fulfill that commitment. Learn about some of the things we've done so far through our partner organizations.

When disasters strike, Walmart, Sam's Club and the Walmart Foundation work together to respond quickly. Working closely with experienced disaster relief organizations like the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA), the American Red Cross and The Salvation Army, the Walmart Foundation focuses on providing immediate and life-sustaining needs such as food, water and shelter. Our in-kind donations for disaster relief are made possible through Walmart's logistics expertise and resources; by transporting critical supplies quickly and efficiently to those affected by disasters, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation are able to help communities kick-start the recovery effort.
