Giving is a deeply rooted characteristic of Clarke employees. It's not just lip-service or tokenism. It's real. We really do make the extra effort to help communities around the world. Here are some of the ways we do that.
We are proud of our One for Tomorrow™ program that takes 1% of revenues from our NextGen* products to support organizations that are striving to restore and protect the environment. Clarke employees nominate qualified non-profits in the communities where we work, and select grant recipients each year. Organizations must be a qualified nonprofit organization that focuses a majority of their activity on one or more of the following:
* Clarke's NextGen products and services include Natular® larvicides, Merus® adulticide, EarthRight® community mosquito control services, Conserve® precision aquatic application service, ProMist® Dura ULV applicator and AllTrace® cattle supplements.
In 2008, Clarke established the Clarke Cares Foundation to provide relief from mosquito-borne disease in communities of need around the world. And in 2010, the Foundation forged a partnership with The Carter Center, through which we have donated over 218,000 bed nets to date, heping combat malaria and lymphatic filariasis victims in Africa.
Clarke employees — at all levels and in all locations — make extra efforts to get involved within their own communities. Last year, we volunteered OVER 4,000 hours in our communities. It’s just part of our culture to go that extra mile for our neighbors. Some of the community activities Clarke employees have recently participated in include:
