AMD Foundation


AMD Foundation Logo 

AMD is built upon the value of putting people first—our customers, our employees, our neighbors, and our communities around the world. We believe that the success of our company is directly related to the health of the communities we call home. As a result, we have a longstanding heritage of investing our time, money, and technology with local organizations to help solve some of society’s toughest challenges.

It is this legacy that inspired us to create the AMD Foundation to strengthen our philanthropic giving and provide focus for our more than 25-year history of community involvement.
