The Discover A Star Foundation was established by a group of Universal executives in 1995 to support local organizations and projects that empower individuals and families to lead more productive and fulfilling lives.
Organizations chosen are aligned with our company's emphasis on employee engagement and volunteerism. Since its inception, the Foundation has raised over $8 million and has provided financial assistance to over 65 non-profit organizations.
Fundraising for the Foundation continues on an annual basis and culminates each September with the Company's most significant fundraising effort: the Universal Studios Charity Golf Classic. In 2015, the event generated over $600,000 – bringing the Foundation's cumulative proceeds to $8 million.
