Governance and Values
Giving by Walmart is overseen by a committee of Walmart executives, consisting of president and CEO Doug McMillon and his direct reports, in consultation with a committee of the Walmart board of directors. Walmart giving includes the company’s donations to the Walmart Foundation, other cash and in-kind donations.
The Walmart Foundation is a separately incorporated 501(c)(3) private foundation, entirely funded by the company. Walmart’s Chief Sustainability Officer serves as President of the Foundation, which meets regularly to oversee the activities of the Foundation. The Foundation’s financials statements are audited independently each year.
