Mission Statement

Office Depot is known throughout the world as a company with a heart. Throughout our history, we have distinguished ourselves through our support of charitable organizations and worthy causes on a local and national scale.

Today, the independent Office Depot Foundation is continuing this tradition - and reflecting the values of Office Depot and its associates - by supporting programs that enhance quality of life for children, strengthen communities, encourage local and international economic growth, and empower schools and non-profit organizations.

We also continue our legacy of helping out when disasters strike, and doing what we can not only to speed the process of rebuilding, but also to mitigate the impact of future disasters.

The mission of the Foundation is Listen Learn Care.
