Campaign for the Community

 

Campaign for the Community also matches those donations—up to $1,000 per person for individual donations and up to $5,000 for coworker-initiated fundraisers.


We’re proud of the 20-year history of the workplace charitable giving campaign. The value it provides to our coworkers and the organizations is huge. As of 2022, coworkers and retirees have contributed more than $100 million dollars in support to our communities.
