Lionshares is a volunteer program that seeks to provide
opportunities for employees within the Lionsgate family to partner with a
diverse range of charitable organizations. The program not only enriches
the Lionsgate work experience through cultural and educational outreach, but
also positively interacts and invests in the local and global community.
Since its founding in August 2012, Lionshares has formed
corporate partnerships with over 20 different organizations throughout the
community. A few notable organizations include: Amanda Foundation, American
Cancer Society, Ballona Wetlands, Boys and Girls Club of Santa Monica,
Children's Hospital Los Angeles, Eastwind Community Garden, Found Animal Adopt
& Shop, GRID Alternatives, Habitat for Humanity, Heal the Bay, Junior
Achievement of Southern California, Kitten Rescue, The Lange Foundation, My
Friends Place, NKLA/Best Friends (West LA), Ronald McDonald House, Salvation
Army, St. Joseph Center, Sunrise Senior Living, Tree People, Wattles Farm
Community Garden, and Westside Food Bank.
On June 14th, 2013, Lionshares held its inaugural “Impact
Day,” the first ever company-wide volunteer day. Nearly 400 Lionsgate
employees participated, volunteering at various foundations and organizations
in the greater Los Angeles community. Since then, Impact Day has grown to
include nearly 600 employees who volunteer at over 20 organizations and
is open to all Lionsgate employees. For more information on Lionshares,
