Social Impact

We use our full platform of jobs, products, business spend, philanthropy, and more to advance equity - and motivate others to effect change.


Diversity, equity & inclusion start with our employees, but they don't end there. The strength of the DE&I we have at Discover makes it possible to advance equity externally in our communities. We can extend our impact to more people and grow our business because of the solid foundation we've established at our company. To achieve that social impact, we focus on these 3 areas: community development, business diversity, and financial inclusion.
Our social impact goals:

  • Increase hyperlocal economic impact through hiring (2,000 jobs) and combined CRA investments & philanthropic giving ($530+ million) across all locations by 2025
  • Business Diversity: $125 million by 2025, representing more than a 100% increase from 2020
  • Financial Literacy & Inclusion: Advance financial inclusion and equity in existing product portfolio, and develop our first Financial Inclusion North Star Goal in 2024
