We’re engaging our global workforce with as many local community engagement opportunities as possible. Our foundation focuses on unleashing the power of underserved youth around the world.
Our goal is to provide community engagement opportunities to all employees.
Make Time for Good Tours
Our Make Time for Good tours dedicate time in the Spring and Fall of each year for employees around the world to participate in volunteerism. This company-sponsored time supports the communities where we live and work, impacting more than 200 global charities across 15 countries to date.
Matching Gift Program
We are humbled by our employees’ generosity with causes they care about. To honor the diversity of employee giving, we match charitable donations to nonprofit organizations in local and global communities.
Volunteer Time Off
Our employees share their time and talent with causes and charitable organizations of their choice, making a difference in the global communities where we live and work. We support volunteerism by offering employees up to 16 hours of paid Volunteer Time Off (VTO) per year.
Social Impact Collective
We are passionate about supporting social impact programs in our communities. Through a Social Impact Collective, we welcome community partners to utilize our Fossil office as their own—with access to wifi, conference rooms, and printers, as well as cross-collaboration with Fossil Group employees. We currently partner with Step Up in the U.S. and Rock Your Life Mentoring in Switzerland.
Unleashing the power of underserved youth around the world
Nearly 90% of today’s 1.8 billion youth face significant challenges to accessing quality education and meaningful work. By helping underserved youth achieve their dreams, we enable a world of unlimited possibilities.
Supported by Fossil Group, Fossil Foundation invests in solutions that help underserved youth overcome the opportunity gap.
“Young people are our most important asset, they are the future of our country. Despite this, they face high rates of unemployment. We must chart a brighter future, together with young people, where they can live their full potential. We thank Fossil Foundation for joining us on this journey.”

How can American schools help more underserved youth strive for college and unlock better futures? It’s one of the biggest challenges facing educators today. For Fossil Foundation’s partner, PeerForward, the answer lies in harnessing a special power: peer influence.
At Fossil Group, we believe we can make a positive impact on the world. Some call this sustainability, but we call it #MakeTimeForGood. Hear our employees discuss the ways in which they’re enhancing communities, empowering others and making an impact.
We’ve partnered with The ONE Campaign to join #GirlsCount, a movement to make sure every girl gets an education.
