Community Investment

We are deeply connected to the communities where we operate and have a long history of doing our part to help them thrive. We made our first charitable donation in 1903 and have provided more than $217 million in grants through our formal giving program, established in 1948. In both rural and urban settings, we support hundreds of important organizations and programs in the communities where we operate with money, time, skills and resources.

HOW WE INVEST

In 2013, we invested $5.2 million in our communities through four main channels:

Giving Fund
The majority of our philanthropy is directed through our Giving Fund, which:
  • Makes cash contributions to community organizations through local grants
  • Sponsors our annual Operation Diaper Drive, a companywide initiative that supports families in need
  • Supports disaster-relief funding
Business Support
  • Our businesses provide direct support to our communities and help advance key strategic or business priorities through both charitable and in-kind donations.
  • Our headquarter region also has an annual seedling donations program.
Employee Volunteerism Research and Partnerships
  • We invest in research and partner with organizations to foster scientific collaboration that will improve best management practices and bolster innovation in our industry.
