Giving back is a deeply rooted characteristic of Clarke coworkers. It's not just lip-service or tokenism. Here are some of the ways we support communities around the world.
We are proud of our Give to Tomorrow™ grant program that donates a portion of our annual sales to organizations that are striving to restore and protect the environment. Clarke coworkers nominate qualified non-profits in the communities where we work, and select grant recipients each year. Since the program's establishment in 2015, Clarke has donated over $430,000 to environmentally-minded non-profit organizations all around the globe.
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 coworkers are active members of their communities, volunteering an average of 18.5 hours per full-time coworker each year. It’s just part of our culture to go that extra mile for our neighbors.
During the Annual Day of Caring, Clarke coworkers spend the full day volunteering with various community organizations, supporting environmental projects of all kinds. Many of the projects we support during Day of Caring are recommended by our customers so we can make a positive impact directly in the communities we serve.
In 2018, Clarke initiated its Partner in Caring award program to honor strategic business partners who have gone above and beyond to touch the lives of people in a way that increases appreciation, respect and care of the earth and the life it supports.
Customer support and community education is critical to effective public health programs. Each year, we sponsor local workshops, training seminars and other community relations efforts to arm our customers with the information they need to engage and educate their constituents.
