Hasbro has been honored for the past 11 years – each year since the initiative began in 2012 – and has also been named this year’s Civic 50 Consumer Discretionary Sector Leader.

“At Hasbro, we believe the right to play is a fundamental human right," said Kathrin Belliveau, Hasbro’s Executive Vice President and Chief Purpose Officer. “Play has the power to create joy and connect communities around the world, a Purpose for Hasbro that inspires our teams every day. Giving back to our local and global communities has been core to our culture since Hasbro was founded in 1923. That’s why we are incredibly proud to be recognized as one of America's most community-minded companies through The Civic 50 for the 11th consecutive year. I want to thank our teams around the world whose work seeks to provide Access to Play to underserved communities, deliver Play Relief in times of crisis, and inspire the next generation of Play Makers.”

Hasbro makes a social impact in communities by providing Access to Play to underserved and historically marginalized communities, delivering Play Relief in times of crisis and uncertainty, and upskilling the next generation of Play Makers.

“Companies play a critical role in creating thriving, participatory communities,” said Diane Quest, interim president and CEO, Points of Light. “Companies like Hasbro set a model for others, showing how to best use employee talent, business assets and integration to create meaningful impact, and we’re thrilled to uplift and celebrate their work as an honoree of The Civic 50 2023.”

The Civic 50 honorees are companies with annual U.S. revenues of at least $1 billion and are selected based on four dimensions of their corporate citizenship and social impact programs: investment of resources and volunteerism, integration across business functions, institutionalization through policies and systems and impact measurement.
