Funding progress through the Mizuho USA Foundation
Last year, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our charitable arm – the Mizuho USA Foundation – focused its grants on supporting the economic recovery of New York City, funding innovative programs by nonprofits that work with small businesses, entrepreneurs, and unemployed and underemployed New Yorkers in low-income neighborhoods.

Mizuho Supplier Diversity Program
We are proud that our efforts to make Mizuho a diverse and inclusive employer are being recognized as areas of excellence. This extends to our supplier relationships where we invite partnerships that promote value, diversity, economic and social growth, and the success of small businesses in our local communities.
Taking the time
Our ongoing volunteer programs respond to local needs in the Americas and help employees make a difference through skills-based and hands-on activities like reading with youth, job skills and financial literacy training, renovating community facilities, food distribution and donation drives.
