SAP became a founding supporter of We Are Family Foundation's

“Youth To The Front Fund” (YTTFF), taking a stand against social inequality and eliminating barriers to funding for young leaders under 30 years old. The inaugural YTTFF “Frontliner” grantees represent 7 states in the USA and 10 countries on 4 continents.

Based on SAP's experience and learnings from the SAP Social Sabbatical, SAP expanded its pro bono portfolio, developing a new offering — Pro Bono for Economic Equity — another step in SAP's commitment to racial justice. The program will feature teams of SAP employees providing pro bono consulting services to Black-owned businesses and social enterprises throughout 2021.

The world is finally acknowledging and demanding that the pandemic of systemic racism, inequality and injustice that has survived and thrived for hundreds of years, needs to be eradicated – and our youth are on the front lines of finding the cure. Frontliners, welcome to the family!
