Off-screen, Glover has gained respect for his wide-reaching community activism and philanthropic efforts. Some of the causes he champions are global human rights, economic and social justice, climate change and the environment, education and the arts.

Internationally, Glover has served as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Development Program, focusing on issues of poverty, disease and economic development in Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean. He currently serves as UNICEF Ambassador.
