Tom's of Maine

Tom’s of Maine
The Tom's of Maine Giving for Goodness Grant Program
Tom's of Maine was founded on a heritage of philanthropy. Through our Giving for Goodness Grant Program, we have been committed to donating 10% of our pretax profits each year to charitable organizations and encouraging our employees to spend 5% of their paid work time volunteering in the community. Our belief in three central principles—inherent worthiness, sharing, and accountability—are reflected in our Mission and Statement of Beliefs.
We believe in supporting the inherent worth of an organization and recognize that people are the critical element in the success of a mission. For this reason, our grants focus on core mission and leadership development goals.
