Hasbro, Inc. has been named as a 2023 honoree of The Civic 50 by the Points of Light nonprofit organization.
The company has also been named this year’s Civic 50 Consumer Discretionary Sector Leader.
“Companies play a critical role in creating thriving, participatory communities,” said Points of Light CEO, Diane Quest. “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 is a metric for corporate citizenship that showcases which companies are contributing the most to social impact, civic engagement, and community in the US.
The Civic 50 assesses companies with annual U.S. revenues of at least a billion dollars. The honorees are selected based on four dimensions of corporate citizenship and social impact programs.
These dimensions include investment of resources, integration across business functions, institutionalization through company policies, and overall impact.
Since the initiative began in 2012, Hasbro has been featured on the Civic 50 list for 11 consecutive years.
Hasbro’s social impact programs include providing services and access to historically marginalized communities, supporting disaster and crisis relief efforts, investing in educational programs, and more.
“At Hasbro, we believe the right to play is a fundamental human right,” said Hasbro EVP, Kathrin Belliveau. “Play has the power to create joy and connect communities around the world, a Purpose for Hasbro that inspires our teams every day.

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,” added Belliveau.
“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.”
