Discovery Committed to Advancing the Sustainable Development Goals
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) put forth by the United Nations is a call to action to end poverty, improve health and education, reduce inequality, increase economic opportunity and preserve our natural resources. Discovery’s RISE program supports this framework for people and the planet and is committed to implementing these goals through our mission to Reduce Inequality and Support Empowerment.
Right now, we're facing the biggest global education emergency of our lifetime. Children, especially girls, living in poverty, displacement or war-torn countries, are paying a heavy price.
Save the Children’s Save Our Education global campaign urgently calls on world leaders and communities to support children with accessible distance learning, ensuring all children return to school when it is safe to do so, and are supported to catch up on their lost learning.
We Stand Together In Solidarity Against Racism and Violence
Discovery is proud to support organizations like Save the Children and others fighting to Reduce Inequality and Support Empowerment. Our partners at Save the Children reach hundreds of millions of children every year, promoting racial equity and ensuring children have access to the learning and resources they need to succeed in school and life – empowering future generations today.

You’re not alone. Coronavirus (COVID-19) affects us all – ourselves, our kids, our communities and beyond. As always, vulnerable families around the world will suffer the most. With our partner Save the Children, we are working to do whatever it takes to support those most in need, and we need your help.
At Discovery, we power people’s passions spotlighting diverse voices, stories and cultures. Passions are a privilege, elusive for many, due to systemic poverty, discrimination and injustice. At Discovery, Inc., we are committed to Reducing Inequality and Supporting Empowerment for underserved populations across the globe, fighting for justice and equality, providing access to opportunities to power passions for all.
Together, with our partner Save the Children, we can:
Support 10M+ people in 22 nations identified as having the most need, and even more in the communities where Discovery employees live and work
Secure basic human needs and bring scale to education and social mobility programs
Provide career and learning opportunities with Discovery through our professional development initiative, Talent Unlimited
By leveraging Discovery and Save the Children's global footprint, we can drive scalable, sustainable and measurable impact that will power people's progress at every level.
Save the Children believes every child deserves a future. Since its founding 100 years ago, they've changed the lives of more than 1 billion children. Around the world, they give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. They do whatever it takes for children – every day and in times of crisis – transforming their lives and the future we share.
At Discovery, we power the passions that make us human. But many people lack the opportunity to pursue those passions in everyday life. You can help change that.
Donate to Save the Children and help us improve social mobility by providing access to basic human needs and education programs to 10M+ people around the world.
