SC Johnson’s corporate giving program gives 5 percent of pretax profits to charity

SC Johnson Grants and Product Donations Help Make Our Communities Better

Giving back to communities: Since 1937, SC Johnson has given five percent of all pretax profits to charities.
SC Johnson corporate philanthropy targets social services, education, sustainability and other areas of need.

Wherever we operate, we want to help make that place better, because we are there. This aspiration began more than a century ago, with our founder, Samuel Curtis Johnson. It’s reinforced by our corporate values statement, and acted on by SC Johnson people around the globe.

Since 1937, SC Johnson has given five percent of all pretax profits to charities. The year 2017 marked 80 years of company giving, and nearly six decades of our charitable foundation, SC Johnson Giving, Inc.

Our primary corporate giving focus is on institutions or organizations that serve or directly affect communities where we have operations. Our areas of interest include:

  • Social: Initiatives that support the prevention and eradication of vector borne diseases; programs that help reduce or eliminate poverty.
  • Education: Programs that ensure quality and inclusive education through literacy initiatives, early childhood intervention, or programs that focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
  • Environmental & Sustainability: Programs that reduce or eliminate plastic waste, advance and promote recycling, and improve the environment. 
  • U.S. Product Contributions

Some SC Johnson contributions are the result of grant requests. Others are designed to meet needs identified by the company directly.

If you are outside the United States, contact the SC Johnson operation in your community to find out about their local giving. 

To apply for a grant from SC Johnson in the United States, organizations must be a registered, qualified tax-exempt, section 501(c)(3) charity based in the United States, or one of its territories, or a government entity such as a school, library or public agency.

We do not give grants to individuals, and we don’t 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.
