Giving Back


It starts with listening

We engage with communities and organizations through stakeholder roundtables and intentional conversations, learning how we can best provide support and make a positive impact.

"This is a collective action opportunity. At Sonos, we're excited that people really care and that we're all committed to this journey. ”

Regenerative sound

Conserving forests and promoting biodiversity

We're supporting bioacoustic projects by Scripps Institution of Oceanography, The K. Lisa Yang Center for Conservation Bioacoustics, and Rainforest Connection. Using sound and artificial intelligence (AI) to map and understand the planet, these initiatives help preserve some of the lushest and most fragile ecosystems.

Music education

Positively changing the lives of young people

Since 2018, we have been supporting youth music education programs around the world, partnering with invited grantees that include youth orchestras, beatmaking workshops, choral groups, and camps. To date we've provided 73,000 hours of quality music education to underserved youth.

Industry inclusivity

Championing women and BIPOC in sound

A 2021 study from the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative found that only 2% of audio engineers were women. That doesn't sound right to us, so we're supporting We Are Moving the Needle, a nonprofit founded by award-winning sound mixer Emily Lazar that provides scholarships to leading music production academies.
