Frequently Asked Questions

What is Best Buy’s commitment to supporting the community?

Giving back to the community is core to how we do business at Best Buy.

Every year we donate a portion of our pre-tax earnings through the Company’s foundation and corporate giving programs to help strengthen the communities where our employees and customers live and work.

Best Buy has a long history of supporting the community. As a technology company, we believe that we are uniquely positioned to help build the 21st-century skills critical to the future of our youth — innovative skills such as critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity. To improve the impact we can have in the community, we have evolved our strategic approach to philanthropy with a focus on teens and technology. We believe that access to technology creates access to opportunity.

Why did Best Buy launch the Best Buy Teen Tech Center program?

Best Buy Teen Tech Centers in communities throughout the U.S. will allow us to augment teens’ in-school experience by providing them with access to technology and skill-building opportunities during their time outside of the classroom.

As a technology company, we believe that we are uniquely positioned to help teens build the 21st-century skills that are critical to their futures, as well as to society as a whole. We believe that access to technology equals access to opportunity.
