How to Apply for a U.S. Company Donation
SC Johnson U.S. Grant Eligibility
• Social, athletic, veteran, labor fraternal organizations or religious groups, as such, but will consider programs that are documented to show they benefit the community as a whole.
• Organizations based outside the United States.
• Political action groups, candidates or lobbying efforts.
• Salary or wage support for staff or administrative personnel other than what might be needed for administration of specific programs or projects.
• General operating support for organizations that are supported by the United Way, but consideration will be given to specific programs that are not funded by the United Way.

SC Johnson may consider requests for support of conferences, seminars or workshops outside of Racine on a case-by-case basis.
• Any program, initiative, or effort that might pose a possible conflict of interest for SC Johnson or any of its businesses (e.g., programs that provide a direct benefit to the company).
• SC Johnson does not support organizations that have a policy of discriminating on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), sex, gender expression or transition, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, whether the discrimination policies are written or are in practice. Our policy is to not provide grants to any organization that maintains such a policy.
