2021 Report

Advancing Opportunity For All


Advancing Opportunity For All

We built a reliable COVID information hub, provided funding to support local newsrooms to continue their critical services and helped researchers track COVID’s spread through data, to help get supplies to hot spots ahead of outbreaks. When it became clear that communities of color in the US were suffering disproportionately not just from the virus but also from the economic collapse, we committed millions of dollars to minority, women and veteran-owned businesses, organizations and nonprofits.

Supporting Journalists & Newsrooms 
During COVID-19

Facebook is grateful to all journalists and newsrooms working under unprecedented conditions to cover the coronavirus health crisis and keep the world informed. We invested $100 million to support the news industry during the COVID-19 pandemic in addition to our previous $300 million commitment to serve journalists around the world through diverse and inclusive programs and partnerships.

Investing in Diverse Communities

Facebook’s fight against inequitable and brutal treatment of minority communities includes providing grants to local and national nonprofits. As part of our Black Community Nonprofit Fund, we granted $20M to charities that serve and support Black people, offering digital skill-building programs, and providing each recipient with $10K in ad credits. We’ve also committed $15M in grants for US organizations tackling racial justice.

Supplier Diversity

We committed to spend $1 billion with diverse suppliers in 2021, including $100 million with Black-owned businesses. From the launch of our supplier diversity efforts at the end of 2016, Facebook has now spent more than $1.7 billion cumulatively with US companies certified as minority, women, veteran, LGBTQ, or disabled-owned (diverse suppliers). In 2020 alone, Facebook spent $642 million with diverse suppliers in categories spanning creative services, network infrastructure, facilities management and more. Additionally, in response to COVID-19’s devastating impact on SMBs, particularly minority- and women-owned firms, we launched the Facebook Receivables Financing Program to provide our diverse suppliers the opportunity to sell invoices from eligible non-Facebook customers and receive immediate payment. To date, we’ve supported over 100 minority, women, veteran, LGBTQ, and disability-owned US companies get the cash they need safely, quickly, and affordably.

about COVID-19

Facebook has been working closely with the World Health Organization (WHO), UNICEF and national ministries of health to connect people with accurate information and help limit the spread of misinformation. We launched a Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information Center on Facebook with the latest updates and tips from global and local health organizations.

Supporting Small Businesses

We know that businesses have experienced disruptions resulting from the global outbreak of COVID-19. We’ve heard that a little financial support can go a long way, so we offered $100M in cash grants and ad credits to help during this challenging time.

Driving Business Equality

At Facebook, one of the ways in which we support over 200M businesses on our platform is to inspire actions that drive equality. These actions include increasing inclusive representation in advertising and media, deploying capital with diverse vendors across the supply chain, and sharing the stage to showcase underrepresented communities.
